Beginning the academic year on a controversial note, CLC Aca- 
demic Affairs Commission presents Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., at 
CLC on October 4, 8:15 p.m, in the Gym. The former congressman 
from Harlem, censured recently by the House for misappropria- 
tion of funds and for questionable conduct, has nevertheless remain- 
ed popular in the Black community, where the censure is viewed

(CPS) — Finally someone has 
come up with an answer to all the 
men who think women have noth. 
Ing to lose in protests because 
they can't be drafted. 

speaking to a meeting of the 
National Student Association Con- 
gress two weeks ago in Manhat- 
tan, Kansas, West Coast draft 
reslster and activist Dave Har- 
ris was asked by a young lady 
In the audience what women could 
do to effectively protest the draft. 

"Well," Harris answered, 
"you can refuse to sleep with any- 
one who carries a draft card." 

as an injustice perpetrated by 
a white Senate. 

Powell's relative silence on 
Black Power has been at the 
core of a slight deterioration 
of his popularity with Black Com- 
munity, and the possibility of 
a new statement next Friday 
dealing with these doubts Is 

Mr. Powell Is Minister of the 
Abyssinian Baptist Church in New 
York City, but Is more renowned 
for his 23 years In the U.S. House 
of Representatives, where his 
conduct gained him both an Im- 
pressive record for service and 
Immense notoriety. 

As Chairman of the House 
Committee o.i Education and La- 
bor, 60 major pieces of legisla- 
tion covering labor, elementary 
education, poverty, juvenile de- 
linquency, racial discrimination 
in employment, minimum wages, 
vocational rehabilitation and 
higher education were passed. 
At the same time, his conduct 
of affairs from BImIni caused 
consternation among several fel- 
low members of the House, and 
tlie resulting censure motion. 

Powell has also been active 
outside his political career. He 
is founder of the Adam Clayton 
Powell Community Center in Har- 
lem, an Inter-falth and Inter-ra- 
clal center of five buildings, and 
of the Adam Clayton Powell 

Foundation, now building FHA- 
flnanced housing for the elder- 
ly In several U.S. cities. He is 
also a life memberof the NAACP. 

On the international level, he 
was the only member of any West- 
ern civilization government to 
attend the historic Afro*Asian 
Conference at Bandung, In- 
donesia, and was the U.S. Dele- 
gate to the International Labor 
Conference, Geneva, 1961-1965. 

Many awards and honors have 
been directed to Powell for his 
service, Including the Veterans 
of Foreign Wars '^Outstanding 
Man of the Year," 1956; "Pas- 
tor of the Year," by the New 
England Baptist missionary 
Convention, 1961; "Educator

^^Modest Contributions . . 
. . Enduring Results 


"Man Is wiser than any man." This pointed little sentence from 
Will Durant Is worth setting over the entrance to a new school year. 
It has a way oi telling us to keep ourselves In proper relationship to 
all the world of knowledge and of wisdom with which we are confront- 
ed. We all really have a great deal to be humble about even though 
we wUl spend these next months in the wonderful world of the schol- 

No one is equipped in the course 
of a lifetime, to say nothing of an 
academic year, to sit securely In 
judgment on all the past exper- 
ience of the race. Nor is It pos- 
sible that any of us have the intel- 
lectual capacity to become the 
supreme critics of events and 
Ideologies of the present moment. 
Man is indeed wiser than man. 

This is a modest role to have 
as learners and scholars, but it 
Is also a rewarding one. There is 
a great chance of finding intel- 
lectual treasure when we can ad- 
mit how little we actually pos- 
sess. If our humility will permit 
us a sense of wonder and eager- 
ness In learning we will Indeed 
have a splendid year. 

In spite of all our personal 
limitations andproblems the total 
result of bringing over 1,000 peo- 
ple together in a disciplined plan 
of study, discussion, debate, con- 
clusion and commitment for a 
period of a scliool year Is awe- 

We do learn from each other. 
Our weaknesses and strengths 
are Interwoven with the weak- 
nesses and strengths of others. 
The ability to encourage and in- 
spire helps to balance out the 
times of discouragement and 
despair. Those in this college 
community who have some spir- 
itual maturity and stability be- 
long with those who are spirit- 
ually unsure andsearching.Some 
of UP have knowledge and wis- 
dom in the way life really is in 
our family, ourhome community, 
the place we have worked. Some 
of us have spent time in search- 
ing for the way life might be, for 
the solid base on which change 
might come to the world. Place 
all of this together in the com- 
munity which is CLC and we have 
an exciting prospect. We will be 
made greater persons because we 
are a part of this whole — espec- 
ially if we know we need to be 
greater persons than we are. 

Students and all the rest of the 
CLC college community— <lon*t 
pass up the opportunities toknow 
persons and ideasi Your course 
work is basic, without doubt. 
There are horizons in all your 

courses that will be beyond the 
strict "requirements," Don't 
miss those greater horizons. But 
college life also brings visitors 
to us for lectures, addresses, 
music, sermons. Be determined 
to bring these Into your college 
experience, too. They call us to 
otlier horizons and other fields 
in the human adventure which 
cannot all be captured in course 

Know all the people you can, as 
well as you can. Rejoice in friend-

"Underneath all, individuals! 

I swear nothing is good to me now that ignores Individuals. , ," 
—Walt Whitman ("By Blue Ontario's Shore") 

A thing which 1 noticed post haste, upon coming to CLC, was the 
animal life. Just about everything In sight appeared to have a rabbit 
under it; and I must have distinguished at least one new kind of 
bird, new kind of noise, or new kind of something, which I had not 
encountered before. I will talk, however, about another kind of ani- 
mal: the Rational Animal. The one with the two arms, two legs, a 
movable thumb, and who pays to come here. And you know who that 
is. As Whitman suggested, you are the one who is underneath it all, 
and for whom it was all put together. 

In college you are put up, put forth, put down, put under, put out, 
put over, put across, put back, and put through, till finally you're 
put in front of all those admirers, with a diploma put in your hand, 
signifying your capacity to be put someplace where you can do your 
own putting. There's a mighty good crop of living entitles around 
here who are all going through the same process, In some form or 
another, whether they plan a career in atomic physics or designing 
psychedelic manhole covers. All of these living entities have their 
own separate backgrounds, their own families, their own particular 
beliefs and attitudes, their own values, their own personalities, 
their own desires and ambitions, as surely as they have their own 
economic standing and their own hometown. All of which provides 
fertile ground for pontificating on the common brotlierhood of man- 
kind, or the common bond of humanity. But talk of common brother* 
hoods or common bonds becomes meaningless, I believe, unless the 
humanity of all of us is simply recognized for what it is: a common 
&ct. With the recognition of this fact, no further l>onds are neces- 
sary; and without recognition of this fact, any other bonds would be 

The time Is appropriate, then, to consider an old charge, which 
was stated by many persons in several different civilizations; but 
perhaps most concisely and eloquently by Jesus of Nazareth. It Is a 
charge which pulls tightly on us, calls constantly for our attention, 
and, when you get right down to it, demands the best that we have. 
It requests, simply, that as we would want our fellow man to behave 
toward us, so we should behave toward him. Or, to put it another way, 
as we woiUd want him to recognize and respect our rights and human- 
ity, so he has the right to ask the same from us. Sound like old hat? 
Think about it a minute— especially when reason, in some cases. Is 
endangered by gang rule; when honest argument sometimes gives way 
to smearing; and when personality, class, national, ajid racial differ- 
ences can and do lead to hatred. Think about it a minute. That old 
charge confronts each one of us not only at the beginning of the school 
year, but anytime we meet another Individual. And, to put It shortly. 
It has much to do with whether we remain Rational Animals or, in- 
stead. Join the other animals.

^ ^,. From Rising Son 

Dear Editor, • 

Greetings from Japan — land 
of the rising son and the retiring 
daughter. Upon arriving In Japan 
I found myself to be an hour late, 
lost In a sea of faces — all the 
same, and unable to remember 
what the missionary who was to 
meet me looked like. After bra- 
zening my way through what pass- 
ed for customs ("Are all those 
other bags the same?" Yeah. 
"Passed.") I looked around for 
what certainly would be the only 
other foreign face In the room. 
There weren't any except those 
going my way. So I decided to sit 
down. Not having any better ideas 
and not having my newly-acqulred 
"fluency" with the language, I 
figured I would let the mission, 
ary find me. 

Gradually this was accomplish- 
ed, but not without a twenty- 
minute delay. During this time 
the missionary had approached 
nearly every member of a Gos- 
pel singing group, the "Certain 
Sounds", having been totally flus- 
tered when not two or three, but 
approximately forty gaijin (for- 
eigner) young American kids got 
off the plane. Anyway, we made 
our connection, and after about 
tour hours of train rides, we 
were home?I 

The summer has gone very 
rapidly in getting a taste of this 
most "Intriguing" language (Oh, 
tor good old Greek.), and I look 
forward to the start of school- 
teaching next week. Before then, 
though, I must get this letter off 
Including thanks, belated but sin- 
cere, to the Associated Women 
Students and the Campus Chest 
for a gift which they presented 
to me at such late time of the 
year tha t I could rjot adequately 
^IQj^ess my thanks lb the many 
persons Involved. So, I decided 
to do it now in this manner In the 
ECHO. TTie nature of this gift 
was that of a green piece of pa- 
per, redeemable at any bank, and 
good for any number of things, 
both goods and services. 

TTianks again. For those ofyou 
who are Interested In this pro- 
gram, my address is 347 Sumi- 
yoshl Cho, Numazu Shi, Shlzuoka

to answer your Inquires, 

I look forward to reading the

other great year at CLC,

Senator Comments 

1 am making an appeal for posi- 
tive thinking and positive actions 
to be taken by this year's student 
iwdy. Last year's activities on the 
part of some student leaders and 
the ASB became very negative. 
The goals of student leaders wttr« 
to fight opposition, which was 
seen as the administration, and 
to show the existence of a dis- 
satisfied student body. This dis- 
satisfied element easily ex- 
pressed criticism and rarely 
gave praisejpositlve alternatives 
were an unlikely development, 

I suggest that this year we begin 
by talking about some of the out- 
standing features of CLC, We 
should be grateful for the beauti- 

ful sotting our campus is located 
upon, for a student-faculty ratio 
of 14:1 that allows for a working 
relationship with faculty mem- 
bers, for an excellent faculty of 
which a large percentage has 
earned their doctorate, and for 
the Christian atmosphere of love 
and sharing which can be found 
at CLC. We, the students, need to 
begin thlitklng In this way and 
then seek positive ways to make 
CLC an even better college.

Notes Goodwil 

Dear Editor, 

Dr, Isaac (ono of last year's 

visiting professors) wrote on 
March 11, 1968, expressing his ap- 
preciation for being allowed to 
share not only In the classroom 
experience at Cal Luth(>ran but 
also In the community churches, 
historical society, city govern- 
ment, and neighboring colleges. 

He was particularly moved by 
the early-morning send-off given 
him by members of the Socio- 
logy Club, and to Carl Clark for 
driving him to the airport. He 
thanks Dr. Olson, Dr. HUlila, 
Miss Beyer, the friends at the 
library and dining hall, Drs. Ho* 
ward, Evans, Cooper, Fellows, 
Leland, "and the many, many, 
students for all the help given," 

Dr. Isaac also spoke of the 
programs now going at CLC and 

fl M B S II I B D I 

Welcome, Frosh and veteransi Now that we have that formality 
dispensed with, let me say that In coming to college (whether new 
or returning) you've come to a stage where creativity can be better 
appreciated. Cast off your sliackles of the past and embark on an 
exciting adventure. 

Your main objective here should be to learn how to learn how to 
live In the world, to make your existence in this world a meaningful 
one. Don't count too much on the after-life; It may not be the one 
you wanted. 

AHASUERUS (ah ha swear' oos) has. In the past, served a dif- 
ferent purpose. He has been the voice of dissent on a campus where 
open criticism has been lacking. 

This year, hopefully, open criticism — bothgoodand bad — will not 
be lacking. At the very least, it will not be lacking in "The Mount- 
clef Echo". Anyone who wishes to voice a responsible reaction or 
belief In reference to any situation on the California Lutheran College 
campus (or not on the campus) has the opportunity to express him- 
self through this student newspaper. The "Echo" is neither censored, 
nor "pre-advlsed". It Is what YOU make It — either an open, dy- 
namic. Interesting, well-read, free forum for expression, or a cam- 
pus bulletin board. 

And don't worry, this editorial is not a sample of my editorial 
style. It's not my habit to preach. The less preaching the better, 
tor everybody,

tion of goodwill and understand-

Loyalty Fund Donotion 

A check for $200 was received by CLC from the Conejo Valley 
Junior Chamber of Commerce fulfilling their pledge made In May 
to the Loyalty Fund of the college. The Jaycees are active in pro- 
moting education in the Conejo Valley, both by donating money and 
welcoming Incoming teachers into the community. In addition to their 
donation to the Loyalty Fund, the Jaycees award an annual scholar- 
ship of $200 to a CLC student. 


The growing need for kindergarten and primary teachers In Ven- 
tura County has intensified the need for the Calitomla Lutheran In- 
tern Program (CLIP). 

Because of the unexpectedly large enrollment in the summer 
sessions of the local elementary schools, six of the CLIP students 
obtained actual classroom experience while completing their courses 
required for a full teaching credential. CLC Is one of the few col- 
leges in the U.S. that offers suchaprogram for elementary teachers. 

In the CLIP program, each intern is assigned two consultants, 
one a CLC faculty member, and the other a school district resource 
teacher, who works with groups of six to eight Interns. 

This summer's CLIP program Included slxty-ei^t intern teachers, 
many of whom will begin teaching In Ventura County in September. 

Odds and Ends 

Durhig the two sessions of summer school at CLC, several "In- 
volvement" courses were offered, attracting many community 
members. Courses in print-making and in painting were announced. 

Students In the music and theatre arts classes were Instrumen- 
tal In creating the major summer musical production, "Carousel," 
In addition to "Carousel" which ran quite successfully for two 
weeks in July, a major dramatic play was perfbrmed August 15-17. 

Once again, CLC was the summer home of the NDEA Institute 
for Advanced Study in Spanish and the California Lutheran Intern 
Program for teachers working on their full credential. 

"KEEP DIGGING FELLAS!" Today, CLC students begin another year 
of academic pursuit (see above) on the long road toward their profes- 
sional goals. 

Accreditation Announced 

CLC received the good news of her reaccredltatlon this summer, 
according to an announcement by Dr. Raymond Olson, First ac- 
credited in 1962, CLC is the only four year liberal arts college in 
Ventura County. Dr. Max Raferty, Superintendent of Public Instruct- 
ion, informed Dr. Olson of the reaccredltatlon of the Standard Teach- 
ing Credential and Teaching Intern Programs as well as other 
areas of study. 

CLC offers the Bachelor of Arts degrees in the general areas 
of humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, creative arts, 
and professional studies, as well as fifth year teaching intern 
programs and pre-professlonal training in areas such as medi- 
cine, law, and a variety of other fields. 

Hillila to Valpo 

Dr. Bernhard HUlila, dean of the college at CLC left the school's 
number two administrative post in August to become a professor in 
the Valparaiso University Department of Education. 

Dr. John Cooper has been named Acting Dean for the interim during 
which a permanent successor to Dr. Hillila is being chosen, 

HUlUa will teach both graduate and undergraduate students in his 
new post. His resignation came at the end of a year of student activism 
on the CLC campus, which centered around three instructors who 
will not be returning to CLC, The dean came to CLC four years ago 
after serving as dean of Hamma Divinity School in Springfield, Ohio,

The lean, rugged Levi's look in a 
dress-up ho.nespun fabric — a great 
selection of the latest colors. Never 
need ironing, never lose their crease 
— they're Sta-Prest! Nobody makes 
Sta-Prest but Levi's.

'Ihrilling Adventure" 

Dean Hall 

Welcome to CLC and the thrill- 
ing adventure of going to college. 
You have before you opportunities 
that are challenging and exciting 
— opportunities to explore a great 
variety of ideas, to experience 
other cultures, if only vicarious- 
ly, to sample the major areas of 
learning, and to explore your in- 
terests and abilities, Weurge you 
to meet this educational oppor- 
tunity squarely with the challenge 
to thinlt clearly. We also encour. 
age you to learn quickly that time 
can be your enemy or your ally. 

In this aspect of your journey 
toward adulthood and maturity 
you have four years to broaden 
your knowledge but perhaps of 
more lasting importance to dis- 
cover meaning and purpose for 
your life. You are a privileged 
individual since many are not 
fortunate enough to enter college 
this fall. But privilege brings 
responsibility to use the oppor- 
tunity In a manner that demon* 
strates you are deserving of this 
advantage; to give evidence of 
the discipline required in order 
to know success in the academic 

You are also encouraged to be 
involved In the life here. This 
carries with It participation 
which really means to have a 
share in something. Obviously, 
this brings you greater apprecla- 
tion of the community than when 
you are just a side-line critic 
and the College community is al- 
so enriched by the unique abilU 
ties and talents each of you has 
to share. Therefore, together we 
can look forward to a full and 
productive year. 

The mind is found most acute 
and most uneasy in the morning. 
Uneasiness is, indeed, a species 
of sagacity -a passive sagacity. 
Fools are never uneasy.

MRS. "B" 









Hoover, Hershey 
Welcome Students 

two government officials probab- 
most venerated by students, FBI 
Director J, Edgar Hoover and 
Selective Service Director Lewis 
B, Hershey, recently issued their 
"back-to-school" welcoming 

broadsides to students and uni- 

The messages are in the form 
of letters warning the public, 
the police andcoUege administra- 
tions of the dangers posed to them 
by students and professors. 

In the September issue of Law 
Enforcement Bulletin, a maga- 
zine sent by the FBI to police 
departments and other law en- 
forcement agencies. Hoover 
wrote that "revolutionary ter- 
rorists" — in the form of 
Students for a Democratic So- 
ciety (SDS) and other New Left 
groups — will endanger "not 
only the academic community but 
our peaceful and orderly so- 
ciety" this fall. 

Militant radical leaders, Hoo- 
ver warns, '*plan to launch a wide- 
spread attack on educational in- 
stitutions," and are relying on 
campus activists to help them 
"smash first the educational 
structure, then our economic sys- 
tem, and finally our Government 

He called the New Left a "grow- 
ing band of self-styled revolution- 
aries" who have a "pathologi- 
cal hatred for our way of life 
and a determination to destroy 
it," and said they wQl be using 
college campuses as a base for 

Fashions by . . .

activities designed to promote 
Communist concepts in this 

Hershey, In only sUgJitly 
milder words, addressed himself 
to college and university adminis- 
trators In the August edition of 
the Selective Service house or- 
gan, warning them of the 
**perlls of permissiveness* to- 
ward students and faculty mem- 
bers who dissent and "create 
chaos" on campuses, 

Hershey said "complete loss 
of control" by administrators 
over their institutions (referring 
to such incidents as that at Co- 
lumblaris Inevitable when facul- 
ty members are allowed to com- 
plain about reclassification of 
students who engage in "disrup- 
tive protests," or to give all 
their students "A" grades "in 
an effort to evade their plain 
duty to determine the satisfac 
tory scholarship of a student." 

He blamed much of the cam- 
pus unrest on faculty members 
who **prey on students" and en- 
courage them to attack the ac- 
tions of government officials or 
help them evade the draft, and 
said he thought those adminis- 
trators who had "learned 
something last year" would sup- 
press such professorial activity. 

Who does more earnestly long 
for a change then he w/ho is un- 
easy in his present circumstanc- 
es? And who run to create confu- 
sions with so desperate a bold- 
ness, as those who having noth- 
mg to lose, hope to gain by them? 

— Sir T. Mine 

by Bill Bowers 

As you may recall when last we left our hero Beasley Trueheart, 
boy reviewer, he was smiling. We found out later that was because 
he had swallowed a banana sideways. Nonetheless he has recovered 
now and has returned for another year of the latest scam(or scum 
depending on your point of view) on the Entertainment scene. Dig: 

The Shope of Success 

Do you remember the comic book super-hero who used to be able 
to bend his Iwdy Into any shape he wanted? NUsson , a new disccov. 
ery on RCA-Victor, Is the kind of singer who can do such gyrations 
with his voice. You can hear it on his new LP "Aerial Ballet" 
CLSP-3956) Not only is his voice the perfect instrument, but the songs 
he sings (and writes) are masterpieces of wit and satire. 

Take **Mr, Richland's Favorite Song" for example. It's about a pop 
singer who to his youtliful mob of fans, 'looks twice his size," But 
in each successive verse the crowds get smaller until "the time has 
come. . ,to call your fans by name." 

NUsson started out as Harry NUsson In 1962 but has remained vir- 
tually unknown. It's about time that the guy with the Plasticman voice 
took the shape of success, 

2001: A Space Filler 

"2001: A space FUler" 
Anthony Franciosa's real name is Anthony Franclosa, , .We fig- 
ure the Presidential Campaign thus far must have been a disaster 
because all three networks are agreed Uiere'U be no re-runs, . .Is 
there any truth to the rumor that they've found some blood la Dean 
Martin's alcohol stream? 

Over and Out 

Jefferson Airplane has taken off again with their latest release 
"The Crown of Creation" (RCA-Victor LSP 4058) Unfortunately 
the album never quite gets off the ground. Grace SUck, head steward- 
ess ^ou make take that literaUy) of the group, baUed out about half- 
way through the recording of the album and left the Airplane sound 
up in the air. The pace throughout is pretty pedestrian. 

Not that there aren't some exciting moments, Grace Slick's per- 
formance of "Greasy Heart" and "Triad" a songby the Byrds' Dave 
Crosby are well-worth hearing but hardly worth buying. For the 
most part the songs are sadly pretentious and stultlfylngly bland. 

Their last LP "After Bathing at Baxter's" at least had the adven- 
turous feeling of flying over some new groundmuslcally, "CreaUon" 
has no such redeeming factor. The Airplane seems to be hitting 
some of the same old notes they've hit before and not hitting them 
nearly so well. It looks like It's atwut time for an unscheduled stop. 


If Penny Singleton married Terence Stamp, she'd be Penny Stamp.

For Thought - 30-30 Vision 

"Let's Build C.L.C. " 

Fellow students, 
Fellow professors. 
Fellow Administrators 
Fellow C.L.C. supporters. 

As California Lutheran College moves out of the years of its infancy 
Into those of robust youth, the urgency of the task increasesl 


I am quite frank In admitting that such an assumption underlies the 
premise on which I stand. 

To want to do the job that should be done, one must believe that 
C.L.C. Is destined to grow and fill a unique place among colleges. 

It is just that slmplel 







Those who believe this will pick up the tools and build. 
Those who don't will pick away at the mortar between the bricks 
of the foundations and turn away, dry-eyed, as the walls tumble,

We need the insistent prod of those in the vanguard, but we need 
more besides. 

We need the scholar who moves more slowly and methodically to 
a significant break through, the steady, steady glow of which far 
outshines the sudden pyrotechnic flash. 

We need to kindle the fire of academic excellence dormant within 
the many. 

We need to concentrate on truly academic matters and not dissipate 
our energies chasing unimportant fireflies in the fields of some never 
never land. 

We need to examine our currlcular offerings to contemporize 
them and render them relevant to the days and problems of our 

We need. In the process of updating, to preserve that which Is 
valuable and pertinent from the reservoir of past knowledge. 

We need to move into this task, shoulder to shoulder, not frag- 
mented, but as a united body of scholars, a leading, cutting edge 
. . .piercing the curtain that obscures. 

Unless we expand our vision beyond that which is at the center 
of the circle and extend It to that which is beyond its circumference, 
we have abandoned the search before it Is begun. 

Unless we do it together, we abandon ourselves to the divisive 
kind of atmosphere that dissolves effort and salwtages the quest 
fbr academic excellence. 












BUT — 





Sometimes the games we play (and we all play them, even those 
who play the game of not playing games) take on a darker side. The 
openness, the fairness, the mutually understood type of encounter 
Is abandoned In favor of something not quite as honest. 

What are some of the games we play? 

Let the answers to such questions as the ones below be your 
reply. How often do we align ourselves with transient causes, 
popular at the moment? How often do we buy cheap martyrdoms, 
caught up by the emotional fringes without fully Investigating the 
true nature of what we're buying? How often do we accept or generate 
conflict while we mouth empty phrases about peace? 


30 — 30 VISION 







To put love back into the rules of the game, we need to keep these 
things in mind. 

We need honesty in our encouters. 

We need to dispel the myth ttiat some are over there while others 
are over here, and then keep It dispelled. 

We need to seek the common ground and more important, perhaps, 
to believe that there Is one. 

We need to seek all the facts and thus arrive at understanding, not 
being satisfied merely with opinion. 

We need to communicate, often, clearly and well. 

We need a cause that Is significant. Such a cause is the building 
of a great college. 

Unless we bring ourselves close together through openness of 
encounter we will waste our anger on one another instead of direct- 
ing that energy cooperatively toward growth,

Deans -- 
"Cutters of 

Red Tape" 

The Dean of Students and liie 
Office of Student Personnel to- 
gether are that part of the Col- 
lege Administration specifically 
charged with responsibility for 
student welfare. From the admls- 
slon procedures through the 
placement of graduates In jobs, 
there are trained personnel who 
give their attention to the task 
of making your years of study 
at CLC as pleasant and profit- 
able as possible. 

The area of student personnel 
is essentially supportive. The 
personnel aim is to provide the 
best possible living atmosphere 
for all who are enrolled at CLC 
so that they mi^t give them- 
selves to the main task at hand, 
namely studying. 

TTils support expresses itself 
first in the process of selecting 
the student body. Then comes 
the provision of grants, loans 
and scholarships through the Fl- 
nancial Aid Office. Student em- 
ployment both on and off-campus 
is routed through Student Per- 
sonnel and a Placement Bureau 
assists in job interviews and 
placement for the senior student. 

Counseling Is available from 
two men with their doctorates 
in clinical psychology. The Dean 
of Students and the Dean of Wo- 
men are also members of the 
Counseling Service, "Hiis year 
a counselor for minority group 
students has been added to the 
staff. Housing is also part of 
the responsibility of StudentPer- 
sonnel and the head residents,

man counselors make up the 

The Personnel Deans as part 
of the College Administration in- 
terpret tor the students and par- 
ticularly the ASB government 
the policies of the College, lliey 
seek to help students and staff 
implement these policies In 
meaningful ways. The Deans also 
have the responsibility of con- 
veying student issues and de- 
sires to the Administration, TTiey 
remain in close contact with the 
ASB government and its 
branches, meet regularly with 
student leaders and try to Inter- 
pret legitimate student needs as 
persuasively as they can. 

In many ways the Personnel 
Deans are "Cutters of red tape," 
Their purpose Is to resolve indi-

as quickly and as harmlessly as ' 
possible. Two emergency loan

Kingsmen Dump PLU 

by Larry Anderson 

California Lutheran College romped past Pacific Lutheran Univer« 
slty 31-0 Saturday afternoon before 3,500 appreciative fans who had 
convened to watch the Kingsmen lift the Ud on the 1968 football sea- 
son at the CLC field. An opportunistic defense provided the means for 
an easy, though hard-fought, victory, capturing two fumbles while 
intercepting four Knights* passes, 

CLC co-captaln Don Klncey was the prime culprit, snaring three 
enemy tosses while returning the 
ball for atotalof 75yardsupfield. 
ITie defensive halfback stemmed 
a Pacific Lutheran threat in the 
first quarter, theftlng an errant 
pass at the five and escorting the 
ball to the Knights 43-yard line. 
Late In the final quarter Klncey's 
third interception capped a fine 
day's performance for the gutty 
lltUe halfback as he sprinted 23 
yards to a touchdown. 

On offense, the Kingsmen were 
led by left half Joe Stouch, who 
twisted and plunged for 73 yards 
in 14 carries, Robby Robinson re- 
ceived four passes for 60 yards, 
25 of which accounted for a touch, 
down midway through the fourth 
quarter. Robinson also hit on 
one of two field goal attempts 
^7 yards) while converting four 
extra points to wind up the after- 
noon with 13 points scored. 

In the first quarter Knight quar. 
terback Ron Hammer was engln- 
eering a drive when Klncey In- 
tercepted on the five-yard line and 
raced to the Knight 43. Thirteen 
plays later CLC fullback Bruce 
Nelson powered two yards over 
left tackle to score against a 
grudging PLU defense. Robinson 
converted with 36 seconds left In 
the first quarter. 

Early In the second quarter 
Reg Henry fell on Knight fumble 
but at the Knight 44, the Kings- 
men were unable to advance too 
far and Robinson booted a 27- 
yard field goal. Following Kin. 
cey's second interception at the 
PLU 33, Kingsmen quarterback 
Bob Fulenwider rolled out to the 
16. Two line smashes by Stouch 
and Nelson placed the ball on the 
ten.yard line. Halfback Brian Jet- 
er, Inserted for this one play only 
then toured left end to tally with 
4:51 remaining in the half. Robin- 
son kicked to make the score at 
half 17-0 CLC. 

The third quarter turned into 
a war of attrition with both teams 
hammering at each other with 
little effect. Coach Bob Shoup 
Installed R.T. Howell at quar- 
terback In the fourth quarter and 
the senior QB responded with 
five straight completions before 
his sixth pass was batted Into the 
air by the lineman for an inter- 
ception. Tackle Mike Piper 
promptly Intercepted a Pacific 
Lutheran pass on their 40, from 
which Gary Stepan drove five 
yards in two carries, Howell 
then hit Robinson with a pass for 
ten yards, then spotted Robinson 
again, this time for a 25-yard 
touchdown strike, Robinson con. 

With just five minutes remain- 
ing, Klncey finished the day*s 
scoring with his 23-yard pass in- 
terception ID, 

Coach Shoup said, *1*m tickled 
with this win. These guys played 
very well and we played our game. 
It was a great team effort. Team- 
work and determination paid off 
tor us." Shoiqj's forces must 
now prepare for an encounter 
with Redlands University at 
Redlands Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. 
Last year's leading punter in 
the nation, Gary Loyd, began his 
l>ld to repeat with nine punts for 
394 yards, 43.78 per kick. Loyd 
boomed a couple 64 and 54 yards 

The Kingsmen escaped the con. 
test with no major casualtues In- 
Dieted, Tackle Reg Henry sus. 
'talneda brulseonhlsarmandend 
Ted Masters received a more 
severe bruise. Both were held 
out of play In the second half and 
both are expected to see action 
against Redlands.

Student Power Is Here 

- ASB Prexy 

by Willie Ware 

This wUl 
strate this 
the faculty and the 
of some of the results 

In general, we as students will 
the administration offices orboy* 
cotting classes. It will be our in- 
tention to make the administra- 
tion and faculty aware of this 
power by continuing to denion- 
strate our ability to conduct 
ourselves in an adult manner 
without being policed. 

Our power will be seen as 
being expressive as student's 
views are expressed by stu- 
dents sitting on faculty com- 
mittees. Student power will be 
further enhanced by ending de- 
bate as soon as possible and 
acting on the decisions reach- 

At the Student-Leadership Re- 
treat your leaders decided that 
something had to be done about 
the lack of facilities for men 
and women to socialize or study 
together. An Open men's dorm 
was thought to be an ideal solu- 
tlon, but because of the complex- 
ity of the moral problem involv. 
ed other alternatives were of- 
fered, such as the extension of 
hours for the women lounges, 
CUB, coffee shop, library, and 
co-ed study facilities to be con- 
sidered for the new coffeehouse. 

Our leaders went into the area 
of those faculty committees which 
make decisions affecting our 
lives here at CLC. It was decid- 
ed that many of these com- 
mittees were involved in "col- 
lege" concerns and not just 
"faculty" concerns. These com- 
mittees should be termed '"Col- 
lege Committees" and should re- 
ceive student representatives. 
The students sitting on these 
committees wilt be our spokes- 

be the year of STUDENT POWER, We wUl demon- 

power in every sphere of life here at C.L.C, Both 

administration have Indicated their acceptance 

which this emphasis on student power will 

not assert this power by seizing 
men to the faculty. They wUl 
be reflecting our views on sub- 
Jects ranging from curriculum 
changes to the purchase of new 
books for the library. 

Believe me, we've got a fac- 
ulty who will listen, who wel- 
comes this new and better rela- 
tionship with students. There 
was a time when we were thought 
incapable of sitting on com- 
mittees where confidential infor- 
mation was being divulged, but 
that has changed. Two students 
were invited to sit on the com- 
mittee to select the new dean of 
the college. Students now sit 
on the College Council (an advis- 
ory group to the President); stu- 
dents now sit on numerous fac 
ulty committees. 

We will also need the expres- 
sion of student power In Uieform 
of manpower as we prepare to 
move a coffee house onto the 
campus. We've decided to have 
it done before the end of the 
first quarter and with your help 
we can do It, 

Throughout the year, you can 
expect to hear very little debate 
on, "What it Means to be a 
Christian Liberal Arts College" 
or "How to Get Involved," We're 
simply going to define hy doing. 
We will make the opportunities 
for involvement so obvious that 
it will be impossible to be un- 
aware of them. 

As students, we have the power 
to open this campus up. We can 
have not only the best program 
among other Lutheran schools, 
but among any college of our

"Pawnbroker'' Screens Here 



No description can adequately convey the shattering effect or dramatic power of 
this film. A superb cast and meticulous direction combine to etch a grim portrait 
of a man who survived the hell of a Nazi concentration camp only to encounter 
further prejudice in his operation of a pawnshop in New York's Harlem. It is 
Rod Steiger's picture all the way and his performance won him a Best Actor 
Award at the Berlin Festival and nomination for a U.S. Academy Award. He por- 
trays a man who has lost faith in God, in the arts and the sciences — a man who 
views all those around him as animals. 

In the shabbiness of his day to day surroundings, the old man relives his past — 
effectively shown in quick, almost subliminal glances: a crowded subway train 
becomes a cattle car of Nazi prisoners; a Negro prostitute bares her breasts to him 
and brings back the recollection of his wife being stripped and raped by German 
officers. Throughout the film a social worker (Geraldine Fitzgerald) and the 
pawnbroker's young Puerto Rican shop assistant (Jaime Sanchez) try to break 
through the wall he has built around himself, but cannot penetrate his bitterness. 
When the young assistant spitefully arranges for the shop to be robbed, the pawn- 
broker refuses to hand over his money and readily — even eagerly — awaits 
death. But the young man takes the bullet meant for the pawnbroker and dies in 
his arms. The boy's sacrifice finally drives home some of the meaning of humanity. 

"/TuA the seasoned camera of Boris Kaufman, Mr. Lumel has ruihtessly searched 
some oj the most hideous aspects of Harlem and middlerlass life around Netv 
York, He has brilliantly intercut flashes of the horrors of the concentration camps 
with equally shocking visualizaiions of imprisonment in a free society. And he 
koi clearly implied in terms of picture the irony of resemblances."

Saturday evening at 8 p.m., the Associated Women Students will 
sponsor Valkomnalest, an evening of excitement for everyone. Val- 
komnafest Is a Swedish word meaning "Welcome Festival." Web. 
ster's New Collegiate Dictionary defines festival as **a time of 
feasting or celebration, ... a periodical season of entertainment 
of a specific sort.** Valkomnafest wUI have a very "specific" sort 
of entertainment — a sort probably never before brought to the 
campus of CLC. It will also be "a time of feasting," at a very 
minimal expense, of course. Finally, it Is hoped that the AWS Sur- 
prise — this year Valkomnafest — will become **a periodical sea- 
son of entertainment," possibly the first big event of each school

Opening Convo 
Views Student 

by Barbara Fodor 

The opening Convocation for 
the year 1968-69 was held on 
Thursday, September 26th in the 
gym. The entire student body was 
asked to participate in the pro> 

Convocation brings together 
the new students and reunites the 
old students by presenting them 
with a basic truth on which to 
start their search for knowledge. 

President lUymond M. Olson 
delivered the keynote speech. 
This speech examined the many 
sides of a student. Thoughtful, 
ness and compassion for others 
were two of the sides present, 
ed during the speech. Another 
side recognized the importance 
of research In our academic 
sphere. It was noted that within 
our massive world there are 


8:15 P.M. 

many unsolved problems and it 
is necessary that we learn to live 
with these problems. Yet, through 
the realm of research many un- 
answered problems are being 
solved. It is evident that the 
steady growth of progress will 
continue to flourish or perhaps 
even surpass its anticipated ca- 
pacity. Through one's search for 
knowledge, solid basic convic- 
tions and good character remain 
the key to success. 

It is important that the ln« 
coming new student be recog- 
nized as a vital part of the 
school. With this recognition the 
student acquires the strength and 
necessary ability to explore the 
many pathways that education

Dr. James Kallas 

by Bob Passehl 

California Lutheran College Is very fortunate to have on its faculty one of the most expressive 
theologians of our time. Many students are not aware of his talents because of his sabbatical leave 
last year. You have been robbed of a great opportunity if you are finished with your religion courses 
and were not allowed the privilege of his leadership. 

Dr. James Kallas Is an excel- 
lent leader because of hard work 
and accomplishment starting with 
his college days. Saying that he 
was active in college Is a very 
mild \vay of expressing such ac- 
complishments. He attended St. 
Olaf In Northfleld, Minnesota, 
where he was editor of the col- 
lege yearbook, a member of Phi 
Beta Kappa, columnist for the 
school newspaper, and twelve 
letter winner in sports. Leading 
the football team in scoring for 
four years was only part of his 
athletic ability. He won confer- 
ence champion In the 100 and 220 
yard dashes and was outfielder 
on the baseball team. Kallas 
graduated cum laude. 

Our prof's football career 
didn't terminate at college grad- 
uation. He played professional 
football with the Chicago Cardi- 
nals and the Chicago Bears whUe 
attending Luther Theological Se- 
'mlnary, St. Paul, Minnesota. He 
received his Bachelor of 
Theology degree only to go on 
with more education and receive 
more degrees. 

Dr. Kallas has a list of a- 
Chlevements that are to nume- 
rous to mention. His most In- 
teresting is his missionary work 
in French Cameroun, West Africa 
where he was the administrative 
head of mission schools for the 
Evangelical Lutheran Church.

If yoti shouTfl enroTT In (Ms 
professor's class of New Testa- 
ment, and I highly suggest such a 
step, you will be required to pur- 
chase two very meaningful books 
which are The Satanward View 
and Jesus and the Power of Sa. 
tan. There Is no better authority 
on these publications than Kal- 
las himself, because he wrote 
them both. 

The latest accomplishment is 
that of a Ph.D. In Religion from 
the University of Southern Cali- 
fornia. This is a product of his 
earlier mentioned sabbatical

You^re A Good Man^ 


by Bill Bowers 

Beasley Trueheart, boy reviewer solemnly informs us that, re- 
gardless of Image, Dean Martin hasn't had anything to drink In 
several years. On doctor's orders Dino now won't drink anything 
stronger than pop. Of course, Beasley claims, pop will drink just 
about anything. 

Shopping Around 

For something a little bit off the twaten path you might try 
"Avenue Road" a new album by a new Canadian group called 
Kensington Market. Actually Kensington Market Is down here as part 
of a cultural exchange program. We get five groovy musicians and 
they get five draft dodgers. 

The Market is produced by Felix Pappalardl, the same man who 
produces Cream. Compared to Cream, these guys are more like 
skim milk but still they have a better than average sound. Although 
they have "no over-lndulgent psychedelic space-fillers there are 
some very good songs with a competent back-up. 

You'd have to shop around a while to find a debut album as good 
as this one by Kensington Market.

Better Off Dead 

"Anthem of the Sun" Is the latest album offering by the Grateful 
Dead (you remember them) with very little creative or different 
to recommend them except for the fact that they now have not one, 
but TWO drummers (their contribution to the beat generation, 
right?) who occasionally whip off some snappy counter beats (dig 
Alligator on side two). 

Confusion Is the code-word. An incoherent note on the back of 
the album says something atx)ut live performances. If so, it is 
difficult to say where music ends and audience reactions t>egln 
(there being so little of either) The music is so lacking in form that 
there aren't even any divisions between songs. Apparently not even 
the engineers were sure what was happening. But you wonder, why 
would they care, anyway? 

Glen's Not Alone Anymore 

On the other hand, Glenn Yar- 
borough's new album is the best 
of his career. Called "Each of Us 
Alone" the album is a reprise 
of an earlier effort "The Lonely 
Things" which was one of Yar- 
borough's most popular releas- 

As In "The Lonely Things" 
words and music are all by Rod 
McKuen, the nation's best-sell, 
ing poet and fastest- workingsong- 
wrlter. Given the gift of 12 su- 
perb songs, Glenn Is free to adapt 
his tremendous talent to their 
Interpretation. The result Is sen- 
sitive, Intelligent and moving. 

"The Lonely Things" was 
Glenn Yarborough's best-selling 
album. That Is, up until they re* 
leased this one.

Balanced Program? At a Time in the Future- 

Dear Editor, 

The list of coming speakers 
In the Academic Affairs andCon> 
cert • Lecture Series, as dis- 
closed In your article of last 
Thursday about Adam Clayton 
Powell, was quite Interesting, 
Such people as Steve Alien, Mort 
Sahl, Roy Innls, Mr. Powell, 
and the others are all speak- 
ers who, I'm sure, will give 
very thought-provoking presen- 
tations. I look forward to hear- 
ing their views. 

However, I also noticed that 
all the speakers listed were, 
more or less, representative of 
the liberal to left side of the 
political scene. Since the Con- 
cert - Lecture and Academic 
Affairs committees are working 
on behalf of the whole student 
community here, then I believe 
it would behoove them to try to 
present as balanced a program 
as possible. Therefore, I was 
wondering whether the commit- 
tees have tried to obtain diverse 
representatives of the conserva- 
tive viewpoint also, such as Rus- 
sell Kirk, William Buckley, 
Henry Hazlltt, or others? 

1 don't suggest that the speak- 
ers program be "stacked" with 
conservatives any more than it 
should be "stacked" with lib- 
erals. All I want Is to hear a 
balanced presentation of view-

Enrollment dropped by one-third today, at the College of the Oaks 
In the Thousandth Oasis. This drastic occurrence was realized 
when the entire freshman class voluntarily withdrew from enroll- 
ment at the college. 

"WHYl" cried the college's president. Dr. Old Son, with tears In 
his eyes. 

"WHYl" screamed the Student Senate and the ASB President. 

*T11 tell you why,*' answered Dig Nit Tea, spokesman for the out- 
going freshman class. "We came to this college to build It and our- 
selves. To be openly subjected to condoned atrocities is a smear to 
human Intelligence." 

"We are young adults," proclaimed Mr, Tea, adding, "We Justly 
rebel against the 'cute* antics of the savages, the Sopho Mores. 
Their actions display the Idiocy of the college*s Frosh initiation. 
Over-exuberance is no excuse for forcing an Individual to consume 
known poisons." 

"Don't get us wrong, now," Tea continued. "Most of us freshmen 
would like to go to a place like the College of the Oaks. If Initiation 
Is to create a bond between the college and incoming students, why 
aren't more constructive procedures utilized? There are obvious 
physical Improvements needed on this campus. Freshmen would have 
been pleased to act In clean-up and construction capacities." 

The college's entire freshman class has signed and presented a 
document to the Bored Regents, stating, "Until the present farce of 
freshman initiation Is radically modified and-or eliminated, we vrtll 
not enroll In the college, and we will discourage any and all of our 
friends from attending this Institution."

Hypnotist Sharp Appears Tonite 

MOUNTCLEF I For Another top 

Hypnotic Performance 

a IPolume IDHIH 
a muinbcr 3 


Once again the CLC gymnasium will resound with appIaQse as popu* 
lar hypnotist, George Sharp entertains CLC students and Thousand 
Oaics residents tonight at 8:15 p.m. 

Sharp's appearance on campus last Spring easily proved to be the 
most unusual andstlmulating ever 
presented on the CLC campus. 

Three subjects succumb to the suggestions of George Sharp, hyp- 
notist. Sharp's hypnotic subjects are unaware of their actions. 

Tonight, George Sharp will make a return appearance before a 
CLC audience. 

Working to obtain his PhJ), 
In Psychology, Sharp has already 
obtained his first desired goal In 
life, that of being the youngest 
professional hypnotist In the en- 
tertainment world. His career be- 
gan with the use of hypnosis as a 
curative and beneficial tool for 
the emotionally disturbed. 

His results were amazing and 
because of this, he decided to see 
If he could reach an even greater 
number of people through the 
entertainment media. 

Billing his program as a "hyp- 
nodelic trip", Sharp claims 
through hypnosis ''people.. .can 
have a psychedelic experience 
without drugs or pills or any 
stimulant which might normally 
Induce a 'trip'." 

"Hypnosis, a scientific tool," 
Sharp states, "it is completely 
harmless In the hands of a quali- 
fied and scrupulous person , , , 
the only dangers being novice or 

unscrupulous use of hypnotism. 
A great need exists today in our 
society to educate students (and 
the public) on the science of hyp- 
nosis — to remove superstition 
and magic from this highly mis- 
understood psychological tool." 

"During my performance," 
Sharp continues, "I ask for vol. 
unteers from the audience to 
have a seat on the stage, then 
hypnotize them all together, eli- 
minating anyone who falls to 
reach a sufficient depth of hyp- 

From then on, It's a '*hypno- 
delic experience" for both au- 
dience and subjects as Sharp 
has his subjects perform a series 
of enjoyable experiences In good 
taste and not embarrasslnc to 
them or to the audience. 

Expecting a capacity crowd, 
Tim Plnkney, Junior Class Pre- 
sident, suggests arriving early 
to be sure of a seat. 

The Bomb 

Fell From Within 

The world and yet there is no theme; 

I wait for the fires, to shout and their cries; 

I wait but I'm no Christian, no real saint; 

It's just been kind of cold here, that's all; 

And yesterday ending, ending as tho It never began; 

Reaching out, but existence offers only the End. 

The I'm-for-power crowd, whether it 
be this house, street, or state. 
Like it's great until Tony stops and 
the Panther^ advocate. 

Reality being milked from the breast of mother Nature; 
But I, I won't spill a drop, for I was born with a thirst; 
Imagination being work and the sweat pours off father Time; 
But to be permits me to acknowledge retaliation of effort. 
Nationalism Is my name, the child Mankind, the first name 
depending on black or white; 

Black is beautiful crieg the reflection In the mirror. 
The contour of, LOVE ME NOT to YES THEY CARE, 
Is no more an apple than If it were a pear. 

I am and I will always be. I will and I shall, 

I am and tills is my theme. My ThingI 

I've sat, and what could be more me than to sit and get this 

I'm black and if It takes sit-ins, I'm non-violent 

I'm black, and If It takes shooting up the man's place, I will. 
I am, and only when the great BLACK spirit drops will my place 

with the bomb be found.

"Awareness Is not enough," 

There are, perhaps, countless thousands of Americans who 
are acutely aware of the crisis between Black and white 
In this society. Yet, they have not been stimulated enough 
to react. They are not human enough to admit their many 
years of suppressed guilt. 

"We're living in a sick society." 

A society filled with bitterness and frustration. 

But the Black people are more bitter, more frustrated. 

They want an "AMERICAN SOCIETY" and this can only be

Although a disappointment to 
those people expecting a riot, the 
residents of Thousand Oaks 
found a very provocative evening 
as they listened to Adam Clayton 
Powell last Friday night in the 
CLC gymnasium, Mr, Powell^ 
first In the Academic Affairs 
Commission's series of speak- 
ers, was a great surprise to many 
people. Despite the congress- 
man's late arrival, the evening 
seemed to go very smoothly. 

Valkomnafest ''Cameth'* 

It was Saturday nl^t when Ian- 
terns and Japanese fans festooned 
the buildings surrounding the fire 
circle. A big sign above a bright- 
ly lit doorway proclaimed "All 
American" In red, white andblue, 
and an Oriental bridge bedecked 
with fans led to a "German Drink- 
ing Garden" where, if you paid a 
dime you could fill your cup from 
a fountain of lemonade. There was 
dancing outside by the fire circle; 
popcorn, peanuts and candy ap- 
ples to buy; and in what had once

The idea behind this transor-

loosely translated from the Swed-

away from that city to somewhere 

Executive Director Tolbert 
Mc Carroll announced last week 
that the Association has sent let- 
ters urging similar action to hun- 
dreds of other organizations. 

The action came in protest 
the treatment of thousands of 
demonstrators at the hands of 
the Chicago police department 
during the recent Democratic 
National Convention. 

Two weeks ago the American 
Political Science Association and 
the American Sociological As- 
sociation, groups of faculty mem- 
bers from around the country, 
canceled annual meetings sch- 
eduled in Chicago for 1969 and 
1970. The American Psy- 
chologlcal Association made a 
similar move. 

The Humanist Association said 
it had placed Itself under a five- 
year ban on all national and reg> 
ional meetings hi Chicago.

AWS Weekend 
A Success 

Last weekend could have been 
titled the AWS Weekend begin- 
ning with the Valkomnafest (or 
"Surprise") on Saturday night 
and ending with the "Big-Little 
Sis Picnic" on Sunday afternoon. 

The "Surprise" centered 
around the fireside area with 
"The Legends" orovlding the 
music tor dancing. The "German 
Drinking Gardens, "locatedln the 
gym featured the famous CLC 
"lemonade" served from a sil- 
ver fountain, A jug band proved 
to be a unique entertaining ex- 
perience for all. The concession 
stands kept busy selling candy 
apples, popcorn and peanuts. 

The "Big-Little Sis Picnic" 
on Sunday afternoon was a fun, 
get acquainted event. It was high- 
lighted with relay games, includ- 
ing a three-legged race with Dean 
Hall challenging the winner. The 
afternoon was concluded with a 
picnic of hot dogs, salad, punch 
and cookies. 

It was a good beginning for a 
year we hope will be very

Responsibility? and Performance 

by Bill Bowers 





In order to improve communications between student officers 
and the student body In general, the Echo has requested Junior 
Class Senator BUI Bowers to contribute his opinions on the actions 
of the Student Senate. This is the first installment of the series. 

The new CLC Student Senate has taken off in a blaze of apathy. 
At least that Is the impression gotten from some of the early 
bumbling maneuvers of that newly-elected tx)dy. Already the Senate 
has shown the uncertainty of purpose that marked Its first year 

of existence, bast year's confusion has not been corrected; it has 
iMen merely perpetuated by intra-senate polarization and a general 

Meeting number one's main order of business was the passing 
of the Senate Code, the rules that govern Senate procedure. Although 
the proposed rule-changes had not been finished in time to give the 
new senators time to read over them in advance, a good deal of time 
was spent In discussing and explaining the differences between this 
year's and last year's code before the vote was taken and certain 
changes were approved. 

The meeting was closed with the Vice-President's promise that 
although a meeting time had not been definitely set, he would notify 
all senators In plenty of time to make plans to attend. This never 


In practice, this promise meant that on the night of the second S 

meeting, everyone who passed the Vice-President's table at dinner " 

found out when and where that meeting would be. Those who did not 

pass the Vice-President's table were left to shift for themselves. 

The result was that the Senate was barely able to scrape up a 
quorum to conduct business. 

It must be stated in all fairness that the senators were given 
plenty of notice about the third meeting. However, no one thought 
to notify the school that we would be using F-1 for the meeting, 
with the result that the meeting was conducted on the concrete in 
front of the building. Most of the Important business was shufQed 
into committees or under the rug In order to adjourn and get In out 
of the fog. 

No regular time has been set for Senate meetings although at 
this printing we are entering the third week of classes. 

What this means, then, Is that the apathy of the Senate is In direct 
proportion to the apathy of its leaders. 

The Senate was created In order tobridgethe gap between the Exe- 
cutive and the students, but the Senate cannot properly function if 
the Executive withholds communications, throu^ Intent or through 

If even one officer fumbles in his responsibilities, the entire 
Senate framework crumbles into useless, polarized fragments. 

Responsibility walks hand in 

hand with capacity and power.

From the Navel - 


For tttose of you who tunedln last week, It will be remembered that 
Jo Ann Townsend, erstwhile non-student, non-resldent,andpseudonym 
for the liberal white Lutheran with those deep and lurking CONSER- 
VATIVE urges, was rapping on our radical Academic Affair Commis- 
sioner (and underdog) Guth, who, In a seldom revealed posture, was 
grooving on the flagellation. 

But what is this ?l?! In a letter M of 26 stamped, self addressed 
suicide notes (marked A thru Z) In Guth's unpublished memoirs, we 
read ^eeps that we are); 


"PARAGRAPH THE FIRST: I know of no person(s) named Jo Ann 
Townsend. At least, she (he) is not a resident, commuter, or student 
at California Lutheran College. Theownerorcreatorof this name has 
never contacted Concert-Lecture Committee or Academic Affairs 
Committee in order to investigate (a) procedures for obtaining speak- 
ers, 0>) the problems we face In putting a lecture series together, or 
(c) the philosophy behindanylectureserles. We welcome her Inquiries 
about men such as William Buckley, Henry Hazlitt, and Claude Kirk. 
She Is a bit late, however; we have known that none of these men. In 
particular, would be able to speak at CLC; we have known this since 
last June. 

PARAGRAPH THE SECOND: Many conservatives in our country 
have been asked to speak at CLC, and so have many liberals. Over 
150 men and women have been sought out for that purpose, not In- 
cluding several hundred more speakers available through agencies. 
From those replies received, and by contracts signed with lecture 
bureaus, our two committees have put together the best series we 

PARAGRAPH THE THIRD: When you consider that this series 
must provide for the needs and interests of the art, religion, drama, 
science, literature, history and sociology departments of our cam- 
pus, and each other department, too; when you consider that we must 
provide programs as different as a president's convocation is from 
an evening performing arts presentation; when you consider that we 
will hear only 14 speakers this year and they must express black, 

white, liberal, conservative, moderate, religious, secular 

when you consider (if you have) what these programs must be, we 
have a balanced program In the only sense that can be meaningful; 
that is, as many important philosophies and viewpoints as possible 
WILL BE HEARD on our campus this year. If by balanced you mean 
50 per cent 'liberal" and 50 per cent "conservative," or 33 1/3 per 
cent "conservative", "liberal", "moderate", then I say you are on 
a statistical seesaw and are headed for a severe spill. 

PARAGRAPH THE FOURTH: If by balanced you mean "representa- 
tlve of your students," I say you are out of touch wiUi reality if you 
think speaker programs (and education) should reinforce the attitudes 
and opinions we already hold of ourselves and our society 
(difference?). Of 50 freshman polled In three orientation groups this 
year, 42 would have voted for Nixon, 4 for Wallace, 4 for Dick Greg- 
ory or Eugene McCarthy, and none for Humphrey. Or, over 85 per 
cent of CLC students would have voted in 1966 for Ronnie Reagan, 
For those who remember so far back, almost 90 per cent were pro- 
Goldwater In *64. What balance, or sanity, is there here? 

PARAGRAPH THE LAST: We will hear men representative of each 
political position this year; U that will satisfy the yearning for "bal- 
ance." But we do not sit down and fantasize (coin, coin) on our desk 

calculators as we plan a series of performing and lecturing artists. 

Perhaps you do not knowthls. Of course, you iiave not spoken with me, 

or any other member of the commutes which made this program. 

Again, whose fault is that?" 


Is it true?I? Can this be the true mild-mannered, gentle, reserved 
Academician that we all know? Tune In again next week for another 
heart-throbbing epi sade, 'Hn The Fence of Heavel", and find out!

Dear Editor, 

Congratulations, student lead- 
ers and C.L.C, administration, 

I am very pleased to see an 
atmosphere of trust and coopera- 
tion growing between you. TTiis 
campus has so many little prob- 
lems that should t}e worked out 
through your Joint efforts rather 
than having one side magnify 
some of them and force a show 
of power by both sides like hap- 
pened last year. We must magnify 
our good points and show our 
pride in C.L.C, 

Also congratulations to Dave 
Spurlock; keep the ball rolling 
(br AMS, It's good to see that 
AMS may finally reach some of 
Its potential on the campus,

A Semblance of Order 

It Is about time (or the women of McAfee dorm to become aware of 
what might be termed an injustice. I am referring to the method by 
which the Standards Committee determines whether or not a woman 
Is late. There Is a clock in the women's lounge, but for all intents 
and purposes it may as well not be there. 

Let us consider a hypothetical situation. Jane Doe is a resident of 
McAfee and is fully cognizant of the rules. Miss Doe has a date for 
a Tuesday night. As she leaves, she stops at the lounge to sign out and 
she also sets her wrlstwatch according to the clock in the lounge. She 
then leaves, fully confident that she will be in on time. After all, 
doesn't her watch agree with the clock? Poor Jane, What she doesn't 
know is that someone before her had set the clock back ten minutes 
in order to gain a few extra minutes herself. In reality, Jane's watch 
is ten minutes slow. 

While Jane was out, a member of the Standards Committee, who 
was in charge of check-In for that particular week, went into the 
lounge. She noticed that the clock did not seem to agree with her 
watch so she picked up the phone and called TIME, She then proceed- 
ed to set the clock up ten minutes, to the correct time. Now Jane's 
watch is ten minutes slow. 

Miss Doe arrives back at five minutes to midnight, according to 
her watch. However, when she arrived In the lounge, the Standards 
Committee member and the resident assistant were waiting for her. 
According to the clock she was five minutes late. 

Her only argument was that she had set her watch by the afore- 
mentioned clock and how was she to know that It was not correct. 
The R.A, then Informed her that there were certain people In the 
dorm who would turn the clock back. In other w^ords, you could 
never be sure whether the clock was right or whether someone had 
been playing around with it (at someone else's expense.) How- 
ever, there was a solution. According to the R,A., Jane Doe should 
have called TIME to check and make sure that she would be In on 
time. But, she didn't. She was definitely late and must pay the penal- 
ty. The penalty In this case is confinement to one's room for one 
evening aiter 7:00 p.m. 

This situation has happened and will continue to happen unless 
something is done to rectify It. Consider, also, the case of the girl 
who remains on campus for the entire evening. She, too, may set 
her watch according to the lounge clock and leave. She may be In 
class, In the library, the coffee shop or any number of places where 
there Is no clock. Even if there is one, no two clocks on this cam- 
pus agree with each other anyway. She makes sure that she is in on 
time according to her watch, but can she be sure that someone has 
not tampered with the clock? 

Women of McAfee, a semblance of order must be achieved in 
the very near future. Are we going tobe foreced to have to call TIME 
to be sure that everything Is as it should be? Be sure when you go 
out that you sign out so that everyone is aware of where you are 
going. Also be sure that you have a dime with you so that you can 
call TIME to be sure that you will be In on time. Woe betide the 
girl who is someplace where she cannot get to a phone. She may 
just have to depend upon her wrlstwatch and run the risk of being 
late. But she also better be prepared to spend an evening in her 
room if she is one minute late,

Student O ffers 



Enter: George C. Wallace 

"Take him seriously? He ought to be taken as seriously as an 
orbiting atom bomb." That was what James J. KUpatrlck said about 
him. You may laugh at him, shrug him off, or ignore him; but 
several experts laughed, too — until he got on the ballot. His 
movement may turn out to be one of the most powerful examples 
of antl-establlshment populism in this nation's history. He Is the 
little giant from Alabama, George C. Wallace. 

I attach this significance to the Wallace movement not because 
I support It (I dont), but twcause, friend, that's how strong the 
movement is. As National Review commented over a year ago, 
'*. . . go home and color George Wallace important, and ourselves 
nervous. . . " 

George Wallace is Interesting from the standpoint that he de- 
monstrates that the American two-party system is not quite the po> 
litical Mount Everest that it is often thought to t)e. I believe that 
the Wallace movement may even turn out more significant as a pro- 
test drive than did the Eugene McCarthy movement (no offense to 
the McCarthy fans), because (A) Wallace is now stronger than 
ever, whereas McCarthy Is, for all practical purposes, out of 
the running; and (B) Wallace's movement represents a flat reject. 
ion of the two-party system ("There ain't a dime's worth of dif- 
ference. . ."), whereas McCarthy's movement did not Imply such 
a rejection. 

Wallace has had a remarkable degree of success at doing essen- 
tially the same thing that many liberals attempted under McCarthy, 
namely to form a mass movement of people who are, as It were, 
fed up with the status-quo. Wallace's hard core supporters, with 
their concern about the rising crime rate, declining morals, soft- 
on-crlme judges, "pseudo -intellectuals," lack of difference l)etween 
the two majbr parties, or whatever, are every bit as desirous of 
change as are most people at the other end of the spectrum. The 
ri^teous denunciations of the pseudo-intellectuals, and the pledges 
to "Bring all those bureaucrats back to Washington and dump their 
briefcases In the Potomac River," are aimed at stirring up as 
much anger against the present political establishment as are most 
of the statements cooked up by leftists. 

To a large degree the Wallace movement is motivated by racist 
feelings. But in at least one respect, I believe, it goes deeper than 
that. The Wallace drive, with its anti- Intel lee tuaUsm and Its smtag. 
onlsm toward the •'Beatniks, thugs, and anarchists," is in great 
part an Inarticulate hick-style reaction against a phenomenon which 
played a key role in the rise of Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, and Is 
now appearing Ui the United States. Such observers as Ayn Rand, 
Leonard Pelkolf, ana particularly Eric Hotfer, have commented at 
length on this phenomenon. It Is, to put It simfdy, the alliance t>e. 
tween the Intellectual and the thug. Just as the goon squads of Hit- 
ler and Mussolini were powerfully motivated by the mystical ideo- 
logy of Fascism or Nazism; so we now observe the grotesque little 
thugs, motivated by several different radical ideas and dogmas, who 
attempt to shout down the Presidential candidates, vandalize college 
offices, and generally create a frightening spectacle for anyone who 
is concerned at)out Individual liberty. Hoffer and other commenta- 
tors have, quite correctly I believe, tried to warn us against this 
phenomenon. But many people, In gut reaction against it, have been 
driven Into the Wallace movement. 

Wallace's pronouncements against the hippies, anarctilsts, etcetera 
often bear no relevance to the duties of a President. But for millions 
of voters, George C. Wallace reallv Is.

Solution to Vietnam 

by Steve 

Although there have been many 
Ideas to bring the Vietnam con> 
flict to an end, each of them 
has arguments against It \^ch 
might lead to It's failure, or 
else make It Impossible for us 
to accomplish our goals In Viet- 
nam, All of these ideas, how- 
ever, have t)een aimed at the 
use of troops In Vietnam, or in 
finding a way to negotiate with 
the Communists. 

First, there are the sugges- 
tlons to escalate the war. We 
could bomb the port of Haiphong, 
bomb the dikes of the Red River 
In Hanoi, use the atomic bomb, 
or Invade North Vietnam. If we 
did the former, we would risk 
war with other nations by twmb- 
Ing their shops that are in the 
port. The second suggestion 
would result in the deaths of 
thousands of people and world 
condemnation for the U.S. To 
choose the third would bring 
even worse consequences. The 
third and fourth ones would both 
result in retaliation by Red Chi- 
na, and Russia. 

Second, we have the choice of 
descalating the war. We could 
stop bombing the North, withdraw 
some of our troops, or limit 
our major defensive maneuvers. 
All of these would allowthe Com- 
munist troops to build up their 
manpower, regain control of 
areas we have taken away from 
them, and possibly win the war. 


More effective use of troops 
Is the third alternative. But, 
^^4lat Is more effective use of 
troops. The way we flgjit this 
war has l)een nothing more than 
a trial and error procedure. To 
change to a more effective way 
may even be a worse error than 
the way we're fighting now. We 
have no guarantee that the Reds 
couldn't counter any actions that 
we take. If they couldnt counter 
our actions, they may try an all 
out drive In terrorism and at- 
tacks with the aid of Red China 
and the U.S.S.R. This would 
prevent us from moving our 
troops, or catch us In the pro- 
cess of moving them. 

Finally, we can look at the 
suggestions for negotiations. In 
the first place we must realize 
that we are fighting t^vo ene- 
mies in Vietnam. The first is 
the North Vietnamese army. The 
second is the National Liberation 
Front. Agreements made by Ha- 
nol are not binding on the lat- 
ter. Furthermore, the Viet Cong 
can Ignore any instructions to 
lay down their weapons If we do 
negotiate with the N.L.F, The 
guerrillas could set themselves 
up as warloards. Any agreements 
we make will weaken our position. 

The object to fighting a war 
like the Vietnamese War is to 
use the propaganda of the ene- 
my against them. First, we gather

Trap d'br 







together people who have been 
hurt by the Viet Cong. Then we 
teach them the North Vietnamese 
dialect and train them In sky* 
diving. Third, we airdrop them 
over North Vietnam at spaced 
Intervals. Once they're on the 
ground, they can travel from 
village to village to carry by 
w)rd of mouth the truth about 
the Americans In Vietnam. Once 
they land and remove their par- 
achutes, they can turn into sim- 
ple peasants as the Viet Cong 
do in South Vietnam. Since the 
North Vietnamese liave so many 
troops In South Vietnam and must 
t)e constantly on guard against 
air strikes and invasion, they 
don't have many troops stationed 
In the countryside, the paratroops 
should have a good chance of 
landing (If their planes don't get 
shot down). Because of the risk 
Involved, such a mission should 
be strictly voluntary. In addi- 
tion, the troops must do this 
without weapons ; otherwl se , it 
might appear to be an Invasion. 
The move would then lose its 
propaganda value. If the govern- 
ment or the troops were to kill 
the paratroops, the people would 
see Vietnamese killing unarmed 
Vietnamese. How would Hanoi 
explain wounded Vietnamese 
fighting on the side of the Amer- 
icans? Or, how could they give 
a reason for killing them. This 
solution finds the holes In Han- 
oi's profiaganda. If the people 
know the truth, they will sup- 
port the Saigon regime and defeat 
Communism in Southeast Asia.

Glrlsin Beasley Trueheart, boy reviewer, has come up with the 
Ideal solution to your diet problem. It's called "Beasley Trueheart's 
Wary Weight.Watchers Fabulous Formula*', a specially developed 
secret mixture of coconut and banana oils. You won't be able to lose 
much weight, Beasley admits, but in just seven days you'll be able

"Super Session" by Al Kooper, Mike Bloomfleld and Steve Sills 
(Columbia CS 9101) Is just that — a dynamic, frenetic, kinetic 
super-mixture of some of the top groups and all of the best music 
ever thrown together by an after-hours group of musicians. 

The premise on which this album Is based Is that the best music 
made is wasted In back rooms with just a few musicians jamming 
for their friends. To prove It Columbia gathered some of the best 
musicians in the country. 

Al Kooper has scored big with The Blues Project and Blood, 
Sweat and Tears, He plays the organ like It was his by right. In 
feet if he wanted to he could probably get a good sound out of day- 
old pancakes, 

Steve Sills was one of the dynamos behind the Buffalo Spring- 
field. Mike Bloomfleld did good things with a bad group (The Elec- 
tric Flag). 

Put 'em all together they spell S.U.P-E-R. 

They come on like a violation of the nuclear test ban treaty. 

AltJiough the music is mostly improvizatlon, their improvlza. 
tions sound like other people's masterworks. 

For the Byrds 

Get out yer washboard, your chawln' tobacky and vour electric 
corn-cobs pardners, cauz the Byrds has got a new album called 
"Sweetheart of the Rodeo" (Columbia CS 9670). 

Cuzzins, II you thought Hank Williams was good, wait until you 
hear this: Thls-here album makes Flatt and Scruggs sound like the 
Jlmi Hendrix Experience. 

By cracky, them's the old songs they're playin*. the ones we used 
to sing in the bread-lines. This is real **Town and Country" music, 
friends and neighbors (and the town is Podunk Flats, Arkansas). 

This-here sounds ever* bit as good as a sound track from a com- 
mercial for Cal Worthlngton Dodge. 

So roll back the carpet, snuggle up to yer honey and do a little 
of that-there Red Apple dancin'. 

Since the dawn of history, many empires have waxed and waned 
and many great kings and princes as well as petty tyrants have come 
and gone. The Roman Empire was one of the greatest. Historian Ed. 
ward GIblxjn tells us that during the time of Claudius the jjopulatlon 
of Rome was about one hundred and twenty millions of people. It 
formed the most numerous society ever united under one system of 

How could Rome have failed? The long peace and uniform govern- 
ment Introduced a slow and secretpolson into the vitals of the empire. 
The minds of men were gradually reduced to the same level, the fire 
oi genius was extinguished, and even the military spirit evaporated. 
As Gibbon put it, ''their personal valour remained, but they no longer 
possessed that public courage which Is nourished by the love of in- 
dependence, the sense of national honour, thepresenceof danger, and 
the habit of command,** 

There were simply too many people for effective ^vernance. A 
stultifying bureaucracy existed. The glory that was Rome was re- 
placed by the pomp and circumstance of emperors and the clamoring 
of the populace. In Latin the phrase "panem et circenses** means 
**bread and circuses." It refers to that period when emperors and 
the public amused themselves by means of contests between gladia- 
tors and spectacles of Christians being fed to the lions. The public 
was amused, but at what price? The answer? The Decline and Fall 
of the Roman Empire. 

Where does that leave us today regarding the lessons which are to be 
learned from their failure? Consider Vietnam, and remember the pro- 
blems of empire. How about domestic policies? TTie elder statesman 
from Johnson City has attempted to declare war upon everything that 
moves — poverty, cancer, strokes, ignorance, and all the familiar 
pestilences and bugaboos; in short, he's usii^ the whole bag of

You make your own political decision when you vote in the next 
election. Consider It carefully: are you for individualism and private 
enterprise or statlsm? Don't dismiss the matter lightly; the choice Is 
rather clear-cut In this election year. If you are not aware of it, 
perhaps a review of political trends In this country in recent years Is 
in order, 

Ralph Waldo Emerson was quite an Individualist. As for welfare, 
he said Uiat "the moment a man says *Give up your rights, here is 
money,' there is tyranny. It comes masquerading In monk's cowls 
and In citizens' coats; comes eagerly or comes politely. But it is 

Regarding matters similar to the priclples of the "Great Society" 
he said "it is true, that, for each artificial want that can be Invented 
and added to the ponderous expense, there is new clapping of hands 
of newspaper editors and the donkey public," 



Premiere Notions

Miami flight? Then they could have the whole mess hijacked to Cuba,. 

Raga - Time Music 

Ravi Shankar fans will be a little dlssappolnted with the product- 
ion values on his sound track for the film "Chappagua". 

Although the master-sltarlst's music Is every bit as poignant as in 
the past, in manyplaces the music, by the necessity imposed by filmic 
regimen, has been made subservient to what is happening on the 
screen. Musical lines are cut in the middle of a passage, and edited 
to fit comfortable over time limits. 

Still the music has moments that give the fullest emphasis to Shan. 
kar's genius. The eerie mlngllhgs of Eastern and Western timbre; 
the combinations of traditional Indian sounds and modern American 
classical sounds; the rapidly changing time signatures. 

Probably the most amazing thing about this Is that Ravi Shankar 
composed the score without being able to write music. For the entire 
back-up orchestra Shankar had to hum the music to someone who 
wrote it down. That proves Itl Anyone who can hum a raga has to be 
a genius.

Adam Clayton Powell's speech 
centered around three main 
points — "black power," the 
presidential campaign, and the 
role of youth In modern 

Having been Involved In "black 
power" for 50 of his CO years, 
the Harlem congressman was in 
a good position to describe the 
movement. He sald,"*black po- 
wer* is not anti-white, it is pro* 
black," He went on to say that 
the aim of "black power' is to 
give the black American the same 
sense of pride In his heritage as 
one finds In the Irlsh-Amerlcan 
or the Italian-American or any of 
the many other ethnic groups. He 
also mentioned the stru^le for 
equality in America, He offer- 
ed an ultimatum to white-Ameri- 
ca, "We want no more, but we 
will take no less," 

On the subject of the presi- 
dential race, the congressman 
caused some laughter and much 
applause when he refe red to Rich- 
ard Nixon and Hubert Hum- 
phrey as "Tweedle Dee and 
Tweedle Dum." Powell also evok- 
ed applause when he stated that 
he had more respect for George 
Wallace than either Humphrey 
or Nixon t)ecause Wallace has 

The main part of Mr. Powell's 
speech was centered around the 
role of youth In America today. 
He cited several examples of the 
power exerted by youth, in 
various parts of the country, to 
force the adult community to meet 
certain demands. Although he did 
not suggest such action here, 
he gave a few examples of col- 
lege students forcing the resig- 
nation of administrators and the 
changing of curriculum after 
hearing Mr, Powell speak. 

Powell spoke a good bit about 
the lack of a leader for young 
America. However, he also spoke 
of the rise of a new leader from 
the campuses. In terms that 
brought thoughts of the rise of 
a desert tribesman, called bythe 
Prophet to wage a holy war 
against the infidels. 

Perhaps this analogy is not 
too far off, because Adam Clay- 
ton Powell seemed to be calling 
the youth of America to wage 
a holy war against the suppres* 
sion of any minority group. He 
said that one world Is dying and 
another is being born, and he 
urged us to make aunltedAmerl- 
ca out of the new world. 

Mr, Powell left after a brief 
question-and-answer period to 
continue his tour of college cam- 
puses across America, In which 
he has spoken at 14 campuses dur- 
ing the past 14 days.

We meet them early In life, 
and know them until we die. 
Their influence Is greater on 
all of us than any other single 
fector, and their power is 
known by each single person as 
they pass through the never end- 
ing process of education. 

They are the educators. 

They are the people that dom. 
Inate the rows of chairs in the 
sterile classrooms (rooms that 
never change with their straight- 
backed chairs, their sufficiently 
bright florescent lights, their one 
wall of windows, and a bleak 
blackboard that serves as a point 
of Information transfer.) 

In these rooms they can be 
seen dally: reading from the text 
book, reciting from notes that 
were copied from various 
sources, drawing charts, dia. 
grams, and important words on 
the blackboard, and handing out 
sheets of paper, numbered any. 
^ere from five to one hun- 
dred (five for a quiz, fifty for a 
test, one hundred for an exam) 
that are designed to measure 
the ability of their students to 
memorize the assigned material. 

Education, It would seem, has 
fallen into the path of history 
and stagnation that will eventu. 
ally kill the institution, the stu- 
dent, and the very professor that 
is propagating the system. It is 
time that each segment of our 
academic community realize its 
responsibility in education and 
function in accord with that un- 
derstanding. Students are chal- 
lenging the administrations of 
colleges all over the country and 
causing a re«valuatlon of re- 
sponsibility and actions. It would 
seem that It is now time to real- 
ize that responsibility and action 
should be placed upon the educa- 
tors of our system, and that the 
students are the ones that are In 
the position to do this. 

For each succeeding genera- 
tion the problem of education is 
new. What was once enterprise 
and creativity has turned into a 
methodology or repetition. It is, 
no doubt,, necessary to continue 
in some of the previously used 
areas If education Is to be a 
continued process. To throw away 
everything simply because it has 
a history Is Just as bad as using 
a given amount of material be- 
cause it has a history. 

Alfred N. Whitehead states the 
situation quite well in his book 
The Alms of Education. The un- 
derlying principle of education 
for Whitehead is the actual aim 
of the Institution In Its pres- 
entation of subjects to the stu. 
dent for the purpose of expound- 
ing knowledge. More specifical- 
ly, "... the aim of education 
is the marriage of thought and 
action — that actions should be 
controlled by thought and that 
thoughts shouldissue in actions.** 
It must be realized that students 
are alive and that the purpose 
of education is to stimulate their 
self - development. Whitehead 
goes on to say that education be- 
gins \^4ien the student is able to 
put away the text book and pro- 
gress without the teacher. 
"Teaching can be too good. It 

can perpetuate a tradition and 
lose the spirit." It can make an 
alive student despondent and even 
kill the ability to move ahead In 
a process of self-education. Whe- 
ther or not the average student 
Is willlne to move beyond the ac- 
tual dependency of the teacher Is 
up to the student and the institu- 
tion. *The quicker the student 
can get away from the text book 
and the teacher, the sooner he 
will be able to apply the gen- 
eral principles he has acquired 
in his extended education." It 
must be an inherent part of the 
educational system, however, to 
force the student to move away 
from the basic need of a text, a 
teacher, and a lecture situation. 
In the current system with the 
over-crowded classroom, the ex- 
tra time demanded of the instruc- 
tor, and the perpetuated concept 
of an authoritarian teacher, this 
is an impossibility. The profes- 
sional gap between the faculty 
and the student Is almost Impreg- 
nable. If the teaching of educa- 
tion Is to give tools to the stu- 
dent with which to grow, the 
necessity of being with the stu- 
dent to help his use the tools 
Is probably the last step for the 

Therefore, It Is time to realize 
that the institution Is not help- 
ing the student to function without 
the teacher. The active and re. 
sponsible role or the teacher has 
not t>een defined. Let us ere* 
ate some new approaches to edu. 
cation and the participation of 
all of the members of the aca- 
demic community In these ap- 
proaches. For example: 

+ Equal participation in col- 
lege life by all members of 
the academic community. 

(Throughout the nine months 
of the past year, an average 
of four educators and one 
administrator attended the 
special student functions 
such as the Academic Af- 
fairs programs, films ser- 
ies. Spiritual Reemplasis 
programs, etc. It seems 
strange that class attend- 
ance is required by many 
faculty members without the 
reciprocal measure on their 
+ A more personal relation- 
ship between student and fa- 
culty members. (Does the ti- 
tle Doctor really make for a 
Ijetter teacher or simply \vid. 
en the gap between the stu. 
dent who Is called by his 

first name and the teacher 
who Is addressed by his de. 
+ Will students always put up 
with the teacher that reads 
from the text book? Will they 
tolerate the professor that 
does not allow for class par. 
ticlpation and encourage re- 
sponse? How long will they 
sit In the empty, sterUe 
classrooms and copy words 
and charts from the black- 
board and listen to the same 
lecture that that teacher has 
used time In and time out 
over the past years? 
+ W111 the teacher ever stop 
by the group of students in 
the coffee shop, cub, or other 
meeting area (would it be so 
strange to see ateacher stop 
' by a dorm room for a buU 
session some evening?) and 
join in the discussion? 
These are just some examples 
of areas where creativity could 
be expressed on the part of both 
the student and the faculty mem- 
ber. The role of the teacher 
must be changed from one of a 
dictator possessing complete 
knowledge and unque stlonable 
fact, to one of participating in 
the discovery of the tools of edu- 
cation. The teacher must be will- 
ing to engage in the actual func- 
tions of the students' life, and 
must be willing to take an ac- 
tive part in the questions and 
ethics with which the student is 

We must realize that the fif- 
ty-minute class period is not 
synonymous with education. We 
must be willing to structure a 
learning session that will be 
willing to move beyond a time 
factor and face days of meet- 
ings and not just a few meet- 
ings a quarter. There should 
be no room for beginning lan- 
guage or science courses on 
the college level. The basic tools 
of education must already be In 
use by the time the student is 
ready to come to the instutu- 
tion. If the student is to be held 
responsible for meeting the gen- 
eral principles of life as should 
be the case in college work, he 
must not be held back by rote 
memorization or useless details. 
If the educational system con- 
tinues to foist the responsibil- 
ity of beginning education onto 
the college and university, the 
basis for the Institution will be 

It would seem simple enough 
to create some changes in the 
routine of our college. We have 
all been involved in the process 
of education professionally for 
at least sixteen years with little 
evidence of a willingness on any- 
one's part to initiate the needed 
and necessary changes that would 
keep higher education abreast 
with the times. Perhaps it Is 
time that we as students demand 
that the changes take place. 

Perhaps It is time that we 
started to use the tools that we 
already have to create an envir- 
onment that will respect all as- 
pects of its membership and live 
In the future and not on the glory 
of its past. 

The surest way to prevent se- 
ditions is to take away the mat- 
ter of them; for if there be fuel 
prepared, it is hard to tell whence 
the spark shall come that shall 
set on fire.

On Wednesday nlghtOctoberll, 
1968, The Pawnbroker was shown

The movie was a comparison 
between a Nazi prison camp and 
the crowded cities. Near the be- 
ginning of the movie, scenes of 
the crowded slum were shown as 
the pawnbroker was driving to 
work. This gives the audience a 
shut In feeling necessary to make 
the comparison. By showing that 
the only important thing was 
money, the writer showed the

just as survival is important In 
the prison camp. The pawnshop 
was used to symbolize the loss 
of possessions that thp poor have

Le Rol Jones, dramatist, poet and teacher, producer and director 
of the Black Arts Repertory Theatre, will appear at Cal Lutheran 
College, Wednesday, October 23, at 8:15 p.m. in the Gym. 

In 1965, Jones was a young, black, literary lion. His play, '*Dutch. 
man," had been awarded the Oble for the best American play of 
1963.64. Grove Press had published a book of his poems. The Dead 

Lecture, and was bringing out a 
novel. The System of Dante's 
Hell; Two of his one-act plays, 
"The Baptism," and "The Toi- 
let," were playing to enthusiastic 
houses. Another play, "The 
Slave," had just closed a success- 
ful run, and Jones was much in de- 
mand on the lecture and poetry- 
reading circuit. He was thirty- 
one years old, welUreviewed by 
critics, constantly referred to in 
conjunction with "Negro" writ- 

That was inl965,Itis now three 
years later, and the score has 
changed, LeRoi Jones, like the 
rest of America, has changed 
since 1965, Jones, on the very 
brink of the American dream of 
feme and fortune, withdrew from 
the magic circle and went up- 
town. All the way uptown — to 
Harlem — leaving the high art 
scene to his white colleagues. 
The intellectural establishment 
could and did take insults, ob- 
scenities, bad manners and name- 
calling. But what was unlorgiv. 
able, the one thing they couldn't 
take, was to be deserted, stood 
up, LeRoi Jones left them. 

There he created a scandal by 
spending some anti-povf^rty 
HARYOU (Harlem Youth) funds. 
Imagine Jones using federal 
money to finance his war on 
white America! When that got out 
there was an end to the project. 
And some of his own people, 
Harlem sharks, began hustling 
him. So he left Harlem and went 
back to his old home town, Ne- 
wark, New Jersey, 

In Newark's ghetto Jones took 
over a three*storled building, 
called it Spirit House, and went to 
work with his community ser- 
vices. "Spirit House," Jones 
says, "Is a black community 
theatre owned by the people of 
the community , , , we present 
whatever the community wants. 
Movies, plays, lectures, sports 
, , , we have a permanent ensem- 
ble of actors , . , we use lots of 
kids from the neighborhood. We 
put on plays for children. , ," 

Jones was prevented from mak- 
ing his originally scheduled ap- 
pearance at CL.C, when he was 
arrested for failure to pay fines 
on ten traffic citations in Newark, 
New Jersey. 

23, at 

Describing his field social 
study methods as "unorthodox," 
Yablonsky said he prefers "live 
research rather than depending 
on questionnaires." 

While doing research for his 
book, "The Violent Gang," Ya- 
blonsky lived in a New York City 
area of youth gangs and talked 
with gang members in his home 
and Interviewed them in jail. He 
is currenUy wrlttng a book on tlie 
hippie subculture. 

Selections for the award won 
by Yablonsky are based on rec-

of all the slate colleges. 

Yablonsky obtained his B.S.

field. MlnnesoU is his alma 
mater where he was pitcher and 
captain of his baseball team. The 
most memorable experience of 
the team was the enjoyment of 
"clobbering Carlton." 

He received his masters and 
doctorate in English from the 
University of Wisconsin, He 
taught in various hl^ schools 
throu^iout the mid-west and for 
a short time In Panama (the

Dr, Gimmestad believes that 
there Is a definite relevancy to a 
liberal arts education. In our 
knowledgeable civilization, it Is 
Important to be aware of our 
Judeo -Christian tradition. Near- 
ly everyone has an occupation or 
area of specialization. When a 
doctor removes an appendix he 
doesn't need to worry about com- 
mas. However, Glmmestadfeeis 
as Emerson that first and fore- 
most everyone is a human being, 
an individual who must communi- 
cate with his fellow man. A well 
rounded view of the world makes 
a person able to cope with var- 
ious strains of thought. This 
makes a man of any profession 
a good citizen and a good neigh- 
bor who Is not limited in his 
ability to communicate.

Paul, in an audience yesterday, 
said "The new generation de-

TTie Pope called youngpeople's 
reactions In protests and demon- 
strations "unleashed against 
well-being, against the bureau- 
cratic and technological order, 
against a society deprlvedof sup- 
erior and really human Ideals,

More specifically the prof says 
that there Is relevancy In Eng- 
lish. This is one subject that is 
much more useful In ways that 
other required subjects can't be. 
He said, "English is a general 
tool and skill for cultural en- 
richment because it is a key to 
cultural resources." Ilie ability 
to translate literature Is an ex- 
ample of the tool he speaks of. 
On the practical side, we can 
see that a college education may 
open doorsto many people. There 
are many Invisible strengths and 
weaknesses that may mean the 
difference between getting the Job 
or not. Dr. Gimmestad thinks 
that a knowledge of literature 
may put a person a little ahead 
in his ability to communicate. 
There are certain standard woiics 
that a person may be better off 
knowing atuut. 

Gimmestad's speciality is 
American literature. At present 
he is doing quite extensive re- 
search atmut John Trumbull, a 
revolutionary war poet. Trum- 
bull was for some time our best 
American poet. 

Dr. Gimmestad is very im- 
pressed with the friendliness of 
our campus. He feels as though 
he Is among good friends and 
has not experienced the Imper- 
sonal feeling one may encounter 
on a larger campus. There Is 
one thing that amazes him, how- 
ever. While cruising the free- 
ways at 70, he finds himself 
constantly overcome by Volks- 
wagons which leave him In their 
dust. His self-confidence is re- 
stored when he passes them on 
the hUls. 

The surest way to prevent se- 
ditions is to take away the mat- 
ter of them; for if there be fuel 
prepared, it is hard to tell whence 
the spark shall come that shall 
set on fire.

Dear Editor: 

As a new resident In Cali-

there is a Lutheran Collie in 
the Los Angeles area, but the 
sample Issue of your paper sent 
to me rates a powerful minus in 
public relations and in Christian 

Your first page stories

Week" showed poor Christian 
Judgment. The vulgarity of the 
ad on page 3 re: Crispin's Hut 
is of the kind that not even the 
Herald Examiner would accept. 

May I surest that you let your 
distinctive Christian confession 
show? In the entire paper I fail-

Ed. Note 

Rev. Drews— 

Your letter displays a lack 
of communication with reality and 
the younger generation. Your not 
having subscribed to the "Mount- 
clef Echo", having been given am- 
ple opportunity, leaves one to 
assume you do not wish to begin 
to engage In the aforementioned 
communication. Although many 
members of the church cling to 
the same attitudes as you, for- 
tunately for the Christian church, 
change Is coming — slowly, but 
it Is coming. 

Lack of communication, the 
lack of desire to communicate, 
and the petty hang-ups of many in 
the church are the major reasons 
why so many young people are 
becoming disenchanted with 
"Christianity", This disenchant- 
ment leads to the church's loss 
of the new generations and to 
its ultimate death. 

As anaddednote — the "Mount- 
clef Echo" Is not a public rela- 
tions organ for either this col- 
lege or the Lutheran Church. 
It is the official publication of 
the Associated Students of Call- 
fbrnia Lutheran College. The 
"Echo" presents what is happen- 
ing and provides ample opportu- 
nity for the expression of even 
widely diversified opinions, with 
special emphasis afforded to the 
lives and problems confronting 
C.L.C.'s students. 

l^ank you for writing, express- 
ing yourself, and giving us the 
opportunity to openly confront vi- 
tal Issues in the church today.

AAC • A Worthy PrograH? 

During the past fewwedcs, various persons have voiced Csometinies 
Tlotent) opinions regarding the Academic Affairs program fOr the 1968- 
69 academic year. Perhaps It should be noted officially that the Aca- 
demic Affairs program Is the product of agreai deal of effort to give 
the California Lutheran College community the best possible* 

Mr. Guth, Academic Affairs Commissioner, has done a marvelous 
Job in formulating and solidifying the AAC program for this year. He 
is to be commended fbr bis woilc. 

Another point worthy of note is that it Is often mentioned that 85 
per cent of the C.L.C. studentry Is of the conservative mentality (no 
moral Judgement Intended). Itie Inference from this is that ttie 
AAC program should have proportlooal representation. 

Supposedly, students came to college to learn without being afraid 
of hearing something new. U a college, any college, is to merely 
perpetuate the beliefs already held by Its students upon entrance into 
the Institution, then the college Is not an institution of higher learning 
and does not have the right to call Itself one. California Lutheran Col-

Was That Reolly The Kingsmen? 

by Rob Anderson 

In the first half of the game 
I was sure that I was at the 
wrong game. Whlttler was there 
all riglit but that other team 
couldn't have been the Kings, 
men. The team posing as the 
Klngsmen, who have a reputation 
for having a tough defense, look* 
ed helpless against an Inspired 
Whlttler offense determined not 
to repeat their nightmare of last 
week where they were swamped 
59 to 14 by the U.C, Santa Bar. 
bara Gauchos, To convince me 
that I was at the wrong game, the 
offensive team (supposed to be 
the Kingsmen) looked sharp. They 
were passlngeffectlvelyandthelr 
ground game was beautiful. The 
line was opening big holes that 
Bruce Nelson and Joe Stouch 
made good use of. I don't recall 
that either Stouch or Nelson was 
thrown for a loss all night. 

The first half seemed to be a 
pretty even match where each 
team made three touchdowns. The 
Kingsmen made all of their ex- 
tra points and Whlttler made only 
one two point conversion to leave 
the score at the gun; C.L.C, 21, 
Whlttler 20, 

In the second half I finally 
saw the Kingsmen defense. They 
held WhltUer to a field goal

after holding the Poets at 
the three yard line. Before long 
the great Kingsmen Defense scor- 
ed. They caught Whlttler quarter, 
back John Mele In the end zone 
for two points to tie the score. 
When the offense got the ball 
after the safety they drove from 
deep in their own territory and 
plunged over the goal 1 ine to 
score. TTiey made a two point 
conversion to make the score 
31 to 23. Only once again did 
the Kingsmen offense fire up as 
they drove down field to score 
•? with 4:47 left in the game. 
With about two minutes left in 
the game the second string of- 
fense got the ball and drove 
into scoring territory when the 
final gun sounded, 

Tlie only major change that I 
noticed was that Bob Fulenwlder 
took charge of the offense as 
quarterback for most of the 
game. The rest of the Kingsmen 
turned in fine performances with 
the offense doing an exceptional 
Job supporting their newly found 

This game was one of the most 
exciting contests we've seen in a 
long time. This should give the 
team the confidence it needed to 
go on to have no more defeats 
through the rest of Its tough 
schedule. If you missed this one 
then you missed quite a game, if 
you saw it you know that words 
can't express what It really was 
like. The rest of the Kingsmen's 
games should be real thrillers 
so don't miss them whether at 
home or away. 

Tomorrow the Kingsmen play 
LaVeme who beat U.C.S.D. 41 
to 6 and U.C, Riverside 24-19. 
I believe it wil be a close game

Theme This Year 
"University Of The Streets" 

by Kathi Lundring 

An on-locatlon urban training center will form the basis of 
the 1968 TALC (TTie American Lutheran Church) Student Con- 
ference scheduled for November 28-30 In San Antonio. Under 
the theme "The University of the Streets." the annual national 

conference of TALC college stu. 
dents wUI be devoted to an In- 
depth study of San Antonio as a 
model for student confrontation 
of the urban complex, 

Texas Lutheran College Is 
serving as host school for the 
conference. Housing will be pro. 
vided at a church in San An. 

Following an opening two-hour 
sensitivity lab, the students wUl 
be sent In pairs and small groups 
Into San Antonio fbr unstructured 
study in the "University of the 
streets." One afternoon has been 
reserved for an en masse trip 
to West San Antonio, scene of 
much of San Antonio's slum area 
and recent violence. 

The formal Instructional por- 
tion of the conference Is design- 
ed to take place Inseminar style, 
with a minimum of lecture and a 
maximum of discussion. Lec- 
tures will be given by speakers 
from the Latin and Black Com- 
munity, and an outstanding stu- 
dent leader from Chicago will be 
speaking on "Student Power." 
CLC can send ten delegates to 
the conference. Juniors and Se. 
nlors are invited to write letters 
of application to Box 2698 before 
October 31. Questions may be 

directed to Willie Ware or Cathe 
Lundring, coordinator.

a member. Spurs, a national wo-

at Montana State University in 
1922, now has chapters on 56 
campuses from the Mississippi 
River west. Its goal is to adopt 
the challenge to serve as need- 
ed in the college and local com. 
munlty, putting aside all ideas of 
reward. Already working towards 
this goal, this year's Spurs have 
served at the President's re- 
ception for new students, have 
resumed tutoring work at the 
Unfinished Symphony Home In 
Agoura, and have continued sell- 
ing doughnuts at night In the 

CLC first began petitioning for 
acceptance into the National 
Spurs two years ago, but it was 
last year's group which did most 
of the work. Each spring a new 
group of girls from the fresh, 
man class are selected by the 
present Spurs members to serve 
the following year. The require- 
ments for admission include a 
GPA of 2.5 or better and parti- 
cipation in at least two activi-

On The Beach Again 

by Ed Moe 

On The Beach was a novel 
which was subsequently made 
into a movie. It dealt with the 
reactions of various human be- 
ings In their last hours on earth 
after a nuclear war. The people 
Involved were certain to die from 
nuclear fallout, so they spent 
their remaining time on the 
beach, considering what must 
have been to them a mankind 
which had gone mad. 

Rod S^rlUig dealt with this 
theme on his TwUlg^t Zone prO" 
gram. A mild-mannered bank 
clerk survives the blast in a 
bank vault. Afterwards, there are 
no longer any people remaining to 

Intimidate him in the vast waste- 
land which exists after the nu- 
clear bombardment. Now he has 
all the books he can read from 
the local library, Reading was his 
main Interest anyway. However, 
near the end of the program his 
glasses break and we leave him 
suspended in a hopeless environ- 

Then there are those of you who 
have seen **Dr. Strangelove" 
which shows generals and politi- 
cians playing nuclear war games. 
You mlgjit have viewed "Seven 
Days In May" and many of the 
other movies on this subject. As

Mother Carries Fight On Draft 

SAN JOSE.Callf. (CPS) — Does 
a draft board or a parent have 
first claim on a minor child? 

That legal question is being 
raised by a Palo Alto mother who 
is refusing to let her 18«year*old 
son register for the draft. 

Mrs. Evelyn WhUehorn con- 
tends that her son Eric Is not 
legally a person, and thus needs 
her permission to register. 

"He will not register," Mrs, 
Whltehorn wrote Local Board 
62, "I refuse to allow him to do 
so. I have no Intention to allow 
Eric, (or whom I am still legally 
responsible, to be placed in a 
position where he must par- 
ticipate In a war which Is coun- 
ter to those things he has been 
taught to support." 

Eric Is on probation on a 
charge of refusing to obey an 
order to disperse during theOak- 
land draft protests In October 
1967. Hehasthreeother broUiers, 
one of whom Is a three-year Navy 

veteran. Another has returned his 
draft card. The third is not yet 
eligible for the draft. 

Mrs, Whltehorn has thrown a 
new legal argument at the local 
board. Up to now, draft resist- 
ance has been based mainly on 
arguments of conscience pre- 
sented by prospective draftees 

The Issue Is further compll- 
cated because age-of -majority 
laws are not uniform across the 
country. In some states, an 18- 
year-old Is considered a citizen, 


For Man's been endowed with 
a mushroom-shaped cloud 
And we know for certain that 
some lovely day 
Someone wUl set the spark off 
and we will all be blown away. 
You might also listen to Bob 
Dylan's "Talking World War m 

It has been said that Americans 
have a phobia about nuclear wea- 
pons. Remember the *64 cam- 
paign? You certainly couldn't vote 
tor Barry, because you remem- 
ber the television advertisement 
with the lltUe girl picking daisy 
petals during a countdown ana 
when she had finished plucking, 
an A.Bomb went off. No, we 
couldn't have "trigger-happy" 
Barry, who would certainly have 
pushed the button. 

I say we're on the beach again 
because slmUar tactics are afoot 
this election year. A current tele- 
vision advertisement emphasizes 
the point that Humphrey purport- 
edly voted for the nuclear nonpro- 
llferatlon treaty and Nixon would 
not. Naturally the reason why 
the former Vice-President chose 
such a course of action remains 
unexplained. Next thing you know, 
an A.Bomb goes off, and while 
you watch thenumshroom-shaped 
cloud grow, you are told "Hum- 
phrey-Muskle . , . There Is No 

Wallace has chosen General 
LeMay as his running mate and 
the general Is Just back from 
Vietnam. Ifthere aren't results at 
Paris, WaUace would seek a mili- 
tary victory, relying heavily 
on the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and 
would not rule out conventional 
nuclear weapons, 

Herman Kahn has visualized 
the "balance sheet" approach to 
WW in — lives lost In terms 
of "megadeaths," He says 
that our initial encounter with 
Russia would cost from 60 to 100 
mUlion lives, but this Is feasi- 
ble, since those remaining could 
rebuild after nuclear fallout sub- 
sided. But theoretically 11 the 
war continues, there Is the pos- 
sibility of "overkill" which 
means kill all the people and 
have nuclear weapons yet remain- 

Sen. Robert Kennedy's report 
of the Cuban missile crisis has 
recently been published. He says 
that at the time one of the Joint 
Chiefs of Staff urged nuclear wea- 
pons against Cuba and another 
was for an offensive invasion 
of the Russian mainland as "pre- 
ventltive medicine." 

Possible solutions to this 
insanity? Stop the escalation of 
nuclear weapons by policing and 
Inspection, which would be dif- 
ficult, or set up a cobalt twmb 
that would destroy the world 
and time It to go off when any 
country starts a nuclear war, 
whether by accident or otherwise. 
The latter choice is sort of rough 
on humanity In general, since 
every person in the world pays 
for the mistakes of one man or 
group of men. However, I point 
out that there are actually peo- 
ple in today's society who do ad- 
vocate such a view.

The Mainstream 

since this Is an election year (in case anyone hadn't noticed) 1 
thought I should take time to put In a few good words for a grand 
old American Institution, the praises of which don't seem to be sung 
very much lately. And the very framework of which has been quaver- 
ing more than usual. The institution doesn't have columns, gothlc 
doors, and moss growing all overir." wope. TTiat Institution is the 
political mainstream; i.e. most of you out there. It would be next to 
Impossible to draw a neat line between what constitutes the main- 
stream in the United States, and what doesn't. It would be reasonably 
accurate, however, to say that the political mainstream Is based 
largely, though not entirely, on the existence of a broad middle class; 
and is composed of liberals who regard the status quo as a valid 
starting point for peaceful change; conservatives who regard It as 
a valid place in which to promote their values, and moderates who 
probably Include most of the people in the mainstream anyway. 

That broad mainstream, however hard it may be to put one's 
finger on It, has probably been the largest factor accounting for the 
high degreeof political stability whcihAmerlca has enjoyed throughout 
most of its existence. To be sure, we have had violence and politi- 
cal disruption. Plenty of it. But the American government and 
constitutional system, even during the Civil War, have remained 
stable and have not been In any real danger of being destroyed 
or overthrown. Most Americans — liberal, conservative and mo- 
derate — have remained loyal to our Constitution and basic form of 

It hardly needs mentioning that ttie broad political center, and 
the American political system itself, are once again being tried by 
the fire of stress, divlslveness — and outright political attack. 
And once again we all must answer a simple question: Shall we stick 
by our constitutional system, or shall we abandon It? In this question, 
there can be no "third choice" of standing back and leaving politics 
to the politicians. Government is too Important fbr that; and In a 
democratic republic, everytrady Is a politician as soon as he walks 
into that voting booth, 

1, for one, plan to stick by our system and to stay in the political 
mainstream — especially when 1 compare It with what the leftwing 
extremists, rlghtwing extremists, and so-called "antl-establishmenf 
torces In our society have to offer. As Eric Hoffer recently put it, 
America may now be a pig heaven, but if tlie radicals took over It 
would become a pig sty. The leftists offer nothing but pure unadul- 
terated totalitarianism, as their actions on some of our college 
campuses indicate. These are, to put it simply, the new Fascists. 
Their tactics are Fascist, their morality is Fascist, and their 
contemptuous disregard for Individual rights smacks more of Attlla 
and the Huns than of any civilized person. The rlghwlngers, mean- 
while, offer emotional alarmism rather than rational patriotism. 
Their racism and hatemongerlng belie any claim by them to be the 
defenders of Americanism — and their attempts to equate their 
Ideology with the Word of God are too brazen to deserve further 

How to answer the extremists? The bold, confident pronounce- 
ments of the demagogues cannot be answered by equivocation and 
vacillation on the part of those In the mainstream. In opposition 
to their ethics and ideology, we can proudly proclaim our ethics and 
Ideology. This does not mean that we should become impractical. 
I suggest that the traditional American belief In practicality and 
Individual liberty are among the most profoundly ethical and 
Ideological positions ever conjured up in human history. Likewise, 
It does not require us to be divisive and narrowmlnded, TTiere 
Is plenty within the American heritage for liberals and conserva- 
tlves as well as moderates to be united on. It simply requires us 
to recognize that American Ideals are greater than anything the 
extreqilsts have to offer us. It's time we acted like It. In times 
like these, America needs more enemies and detractors about 
like Ciister needed more Indians; and It's time we proudly proclaim- 
ed that.

I was proud to see my pre* 
diction of last week come true. 
We did win by 7 with the final 
score 21-14. This week I won't 
hazard a prediction except that 
the Kingsmen can win If they 
play anything like they did against 

The game against La Verne 
was not very Impressive, It seem- 
ed Incredible that this could be 
the same team that decisively 
beat the Whittier Poets one week 

I don't want to be to critical 
because I know that I couldn't 
have done as well. However, 
the otfense did lack a balanced 
attack like I saw last week. 
If It had not been for what may 
be the strongest factor that our 
offense has, namely Bruce Nel- 
son and Joe Stouch, we would 
never have scored. The 14 
penalties we received cost us 
a lot, 124 yds. Generally we 
looked sloppy, much like a team 
In Us first or second game. 

TTie Kingsmen defense saved 
the game for us. It took 66 
interceptions by them to hold 
La Verne to two T.D.'s. Our 
team Is now the natloi/s lead- 
ing Interceptor with 22 tor the 
season. The defense still doesn't 
look like the traditional Kings- 
men who in the past have held 
their opponents to gaining very 
few yards on the ground. 

I hope to see an Inspired team 
on the field tomorrow as the 
Kingsmen are hosts to the tough 
team from Canada, Simon Fra- 


The Knaves had a first last 
week when they defeated U.C.S.B. 
34-0, It was our first victory over 
the Gauchoes, The score doesn't 
tell the whole story because on 
another day the game could have 
gone the other way. The Knaves 
now boast a 5-0 record for the 
season. They are looking to make 
history again by being the first 
team to complete a full season 
without a defeat. Today they play 
Whittier there in what should be 
a good game. 

Number 86 Is Tim ^iJelr.Oast 
week I didn't know his name), 
He along with a host of others 
played an extremely fine game 
against U.C.S.B. ^^js^e proud

What's Wrong 
Witti'The "Red Baron? 

by Jlona Volkman 

Isn't the whole thing a one sided 
story? ITie proud aristocratic 
Prussian World War I officer 
was trying to make a living up- 
holding his country's honor In 
the Tories of battle and what 
happens — he Is turned Into 
public enemy No. 1. What is his 
crime? Does he smoke? Does he 
have bad breath? Are we even 
certain he hates dogs? Tliere 
are obviously two sides to the 
story. Maybe Snoopy is Just a 
bad shot. Let's make this a fair 
fight. If Snoppy runs for Presi- 
dent on the Webers for Lunch 
platform, we must demand equal 
rights for the Baron with aLang-

As to the constitution. If we turn 
the White House into a doghouse, 
what would be the objection to a 
Pennsylvania Ave. Hofbrau? 

Are you a thinking person? 
Or does propaganda lead you 
down its desired paths?. If you 

are the type who doesn't take 
everything for granted, then think 
about supporting the efforts of 
the German Club. The German 
Club attempts to expose anach- 
ronisms and reexamine world 
issues, maybe. The German Club 
might even have regular monthly 
meetings. For those dramatically 
Inclined radio plays, stories, and 
poetry will be recorded for the 
language labs. Guest speakers 
and "outings" concerning Euro- 
pean life, politics, and art are 
planned. Parties and German din- 
ners will be climaxed by a raid 
on a German delicatessen (no 
kosher pickles.) These and many 
events not talked about in lieu 
of campus spies are going to 
make the German Club one of 
the more challenging organiza- 
tions on campus. 

For security reasons the 
names of advisors, officers and 
key supporters are kept carefully 
hidden from the public.

The most controversial European film in many year^ LA 
DOLCE VITA is, in essence, an analysis of one side of con- 
temporary Roman life told in a number of sequences of a 
cynical, yet naive journalist (Marcello Mastroianni ) . On an 
even broader scale, it dissects and lays open a whole swath 
of society, exposing the decay and tragedr of over-civilization.

"I am God',*t replied the stranger. 

"I don't believe you'*, sneered the Prime Minister. "Show me a miracle." 

And God showed the Prime Minister the miracle of birth.

produce flsh and mammals to our design. Show me a proper miracle." 

And God caused the sky to darken and hailstones came pouring down. 

"That'4 nothing." said the Prime Minister, picking up the telephone to 
the Air Ministry. "Send up a meteorological plane and sprinkle the clouds 
with silver chloride crystals." 

And the plane went up and sprinkled the clouds which had darkened the 
world and the hailstones stopped pouring down and the sun shone brightly.

And God caused a plague of frogs to descend on the land. 
The Prime Minister picked up the telephone. 

"Get the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries", he said to the operator, 
"and instruct them to procure a frog killer as myxomatosis killed rabbits." 

And soon the land was free of frogs and the people gave thanks to the 
Prime Minister and erected laboratories in his name.

He pressed a button on his desk. And missiles flew to their pre-

"let me live again." 

Why, who are you?" said God, closing the lid. 




Students Present -. 
Views On McCarthy 

Senator McCarthy 

by Nancy Pingree 

"The country must act to es- 
tablish conditions for equality. 
There Is no longer any excuse 
tor poverty; we must be morally 
responsible. This appeal must 
be taken seriously and the Viet- 
namese War Is not to be exclude 

This quotation, taken from the 
brief words that Senator McCar- 
thy spoke here, Invalidates any 
statement that he had nothing to 
say, that he was not worth the 
wait. The quote and what he said 
before It and after It establish 
that he definitely said something 
and said something worth getting 
Involved In. 

McCarthy was unafraid to say 
that the War is not defensible, 
that it's time poverty was no 
longer ignored, that a rational ap- 
proach to the Draft Is possible, 
and that something must be done 
about our government. A govern- 
ment whose power Is increasingly 
concentrated In the Executive 
Branch, and whose Chief Execu- 
tive has begun to refer to the 
other d^artments as "mine," 
Mr, Shelnbaum Introduced him 
as a man who had established or 
was trying to establish the idea 
of '*new politics" which Mc- 
Carthy spoke of as the **new 
politics of participation." He de» 
sires a responsible government 
which Is formed by and for res- 
ponsible people. He asks thepeo- 
poQslble people to look at the is- 
sues without fear and prejudice, 
but most Importantly he asks that 
they at least examine them. He 
felt it a challenge to accom- 
plish these things, yet, to him 
is It not a challenge of leader- 
ship, rather a challenge to find 
someone who will express the 
public will for the public good. 
The "new politics" is not even 
new when taken In this way, be-

Senator McCarthy In his CLC 
campus address said, "I wanted 
to, . .express their public judg- 
ment with reference to the war 
in Vietnam, , . ." This was one 
of his motives In running for 
the Presidential office in the 

Further on In the Senator's 
speech he stated, "We might 
even give some thought to of* 
ferlng a kind of amnesty to those 
young people who have left the 
country. , , ." 

Now in these two statements 
by McCarthy, he admits that we 
are at war, even though It Is not 
officially declared. He Is for an 
amnesty (political pardon) for 
those who have left the country. 

Even though I am against the 
Selective Service System, I must 
still maintain that a person who 
comm'lts defection (abandonment 
of duty) and flees to another 
country Is, although not official- 
ly, but rather morally a traitor. 
Also, anyone who condones or 
advocates that "We" (the U.S.A,) 
should welcome these characters 
with an offiflcal — your excused 
poor little traitor — policy. Is 
in my opinion, about as close to 
official peace time treason as 
one can possibly get. And such 
a one is Ho Chi McCarthy, 

On an Issue of poverty Mc- 
Carthy said that, ", , On the 
twenty years since the end of 
the war we have achieved the 
kind of mastery over the eco- 
nomy so that we no longer have 
the excuse of having large num- 
bers of our people live in po- 
verty," If in saying "we," this 
Minnesota Senator means the U.S. 
Federal Government, Iwouldllke 
to state that he seems to want to 
turn Uncle Sam into Papa Sam, 
and enslave every citizen, es- 
pecially the poor, into child- 
like dependency upon the Father- 
hood of Southpaw Socialism. 

persuade people to write McCar- 
thy in on the November baUot, 
McCarthy made no reference 
to his future political activities 
nor did he make any statement 
as to the coming elections or to 
what Is happening within his poli- 
tical party. Yet, just from what 
he said here, It is evident that 
what Mr, Shelnbaum said Is true 
— he Is a man who sets stan- 
dards andwho has principles. And 
contrary to what Mr, Powell 
said when he spoke here, Mc. 
Carthy did not seem the least 
"castrated;" he did not even 
seem temporarily sterilized.

The Year Of 

Our Disenchantment 

by Frank Nausin 

The understatement of the 
year may be Is that this Is 
going to be a critical election 
year. We have already seen the 
fiasco in Chicago and the rub- 
ber stamp in Miami. The third 
party candidate has said that 
neither of the major party can- 
didates offer "a dime's worth 
of difference," Let us look at 
these candidates. Humphrey and 
Nixon are both proven politicians 
and play the game very well. Yet 
there is a moderation and lack 
of commitment in these two can- 
didates. Wallace does have com- 
mitment, but to many, the things 
he is commited to are totally 

All three candidates have one 
thing in common. They are all 
weakly or totally uncommitted to 
trtit. which is human. To put it 
another way, they neglect the 
cries of the poor in order to 
please '"big business", or as 
some people have called It "the 
monied interests." None of them 
have come out strongly on the in- 
justice in the country, and Wal- 
lace even draws much of his sup- 
port from racist voters. 

But enough about these three 
"gems". What about the people 
who just might care about other 
people, Instead of placing mater- 

ial gain first? Who are these peo- 
ple to vote for? How -can they 
hope to remain within the frame- 
work of what we now know as 
political parties. 

They had two candidates, one 
who was assasinated the other 
who was all but annihlliated, at 
the Democratic convention. With 
both of their candidates out of 
the running, whom do they follow? 
Let us face it, there is no one, 
Eugene McCarthy, who just was 
on campus, started a movement, 
a movement that has never been 
seen in this country. McCarthy 
has been defeated by the party 
elite, and Kennedy has been slain 
but the Idea of a government of 
and for the people must not die 
or be defeated. It must continue 
to persevere, to attempt to be 
human, to attempt to be just and, 
most of all, to attempt to set up 
a society in which the cries of 
the poor and disenfranchised can 
be heard over the whispers of 
"big business". In the words of 

"Ah, what shall I be at fifty, 
Should nature keep me alive. 
If I find the world so bitter 
When I am but Twenty-five? 

Is the glass 

half empty or 

half full?

Kingsmen Stave Off La Verne 

Prep For Simon Fraser 

by Larry Anderson 

Aided by six pass Intercep- 
tions, three by Defensive Half 
back Dave Spurlock, the Call 
fomia Lutheran College Kings 
men defeated the La Verne Leo 
pards, 21>14, In a Saturday after 
noon grid battle at CLC. The 
win marked the sixth consecu. 
tlve triumph by the Thousand 
Oaks footballers over La Verne 
In the seven.year series between 
the rival schools. 

While the Interceptions helped 
to stifle the Leopards, penalties 
kept Cal Lutheran off balance 
for most of the contest. In the 
end CLC's vaunted defense and 
the talented toe of Robby Robin* 
son were the deciding factors 
for the Kingsmen in subduing 
scrappy La Verne, 

CLC Jumped out to a 7-0 lead 
In the first quarter when a poor 
snap from center fbrced Leopard 
Punter Mike Culton to run the 
ball on fourth down, where he 
was nailed to give the Kingsmen 
Ideal field position on the La 
Verne 20. Five thrusts into the 
line, the last one four yards 
up the middle by Halfback Joe 
Stouch, resulted in a score. Rob, 
Inson converted, 

Robinson booted home a 36- 
yard field goal in the second 
quarter, and Kingsmen Quarter- 
back Bob Fulenwlder found End 
Jim Quiring all alone later in the 
quarter and hit the speedy receiv- 
er with a pass that covered half 
the distance of a 75-yard touch- 

down play. Stouch ran for two 
points on the conversion, making 
the score 18-0, CLC, 

La Verne tallied just before 
the half on a quarterback sneak 
by Mike Clifton to pull the Leos 
closer, 18*6, 

Robinson's second field goal 
of the day, a 41-yarder in the 
third quarter that established, 
a new school record in field goal 
distance, wrote finis to the Kings, 
men point gathering for the day, 
Robinson was selected Back of 
the Game for his stalwart per- 
formance that provided the win- 
ning seven points In addition to 
kicking off and rushing for 62 
yards In four carries for a 15,5 
yards.per-carry average. 

The Leopards threatened re- 
peatedly In the fourth quarter, 
but timely pass Interceptions by 
the Kingsmen thwarted any La 
Verne advances save for a three- 
yard TD plunge by Halfback 
Larry Houg, A Cllfton-to-Mike 
Daniels pass accounted for the 
two-point conversion to bring the 
score to the final, 2U14. 

Once again the leading ground 
gainers for the Kingsmen were 
Halfback Stouch and Fullback 
Bruce Nelson, who In 22 and 21 
carries gained 124 and 95 yards, 

Right Offensive Guard John 
DUlon was hailed by Coach Bob 
Shoup as Lineman of the Game 
tor a performance that was an- 

other In a string of consistent 
games by the 210'lb, Junior. Shoup 
says the game films prove Dillon 
to be consistent In executing 
blocking assignments while 
utilizing excellent technique. Dil- 
lon serves as the trap blocker 
on running plays and Is a prime 
factor in the success of the CLC 
running game. 

Saturday afternoon at the 
Kingsmen Field Simon Fraser 
University will confront Califor- 
nia Lutheran in what CLC Ath- 
letlc Director John Siemens 
terms "the biggest game to date 
for our guys." Simon Fraser 
sports a victory over Cal Wes. 
tern, which indicates how tough 
the Clansmen must be, 

Simon Fraser is led by Quar- 
terback Wayne Holm, a "one- 
man team" who is one of the 
leaders in NAIA total offense, 
Saturday's battle will pit Holm 
against the nation's leading pass 
Interception defense, as CLC has 
swiped 22 enemy passes in just 
five games. 

Holm's two favorite pass re- 
ceivers, Mike Berg andTed War- 
kentln, are healthy and ready for 
action. Action there will be Sat- 
urday at 2:00 p,m. on the Kings-

Evolution of the Undergraduate 

by Dick Wolfsie 

Harvey is a freshman. In high 
school he represented the third floor 
water fountain — now he's a nobody. 
Harvey misses his mother very much. 
In fact, he even writes the maid twice 
a week. Harvey is very optimistic 
about college, he wants to learn and 
he thinks college will be interesting. 
Color Harvey confused and soon to he 
disillusioned and laboring under a 
misconception. Harvey reads Play- 
boy because everyone else does. He 
wears a plaid shirt and chinos. 

Harvey is a junior. He has final- 
ly realized that the purpose of edu- 
cation is not to study facts, but to 
seek TRUTH, stomp out CONFORMI- 
TY, and rationalize imORALITY, 
Harvey will picket for such things as 
SEX and DRUGS. Later on he will 
mature <wid canpaign for one way 
bottles, and wider bob-sleds. Har- 
vey wears sun glasses so everyone 
will recognize him. He reads Play- 
boy because it's intellectual. Har- 
vey doesn't wear socks or shoes. 
Harvey doesn't iron ihis shirt, hejusti 
rearranges the wrinkles. 

Harvey is a sophomore. When Har- 
vey calls the girls ' dorm he asks if 
there were any messages. When Har- 
vey does poorly on m exam he ex- 
plains how unimportant tests ore, but 
when he does well, he stresses the 
the importance of academic achieve- 
ment. Harvey is cool, slick, sharp, 
(the whole bit). 

Harvey looks atthe centerfold of Play- 
boy. Harvey wears a tie and jacke t to 

Harvey is a senior ??? I mean, 
Harvey IS a senior!!! His appearance 
is hauntingly similar to a freshman. 
Harvey thinks his education has been 
a waste, that graduate school will be 
boring, that he has no chance in life 
and that his draft board is breathing 
do¥m his neck. Harvey, as you can 
see, no longer labors under miscon- 
ceptions. Harvey doesn't read Play- 
boy; after four years of college, he 
can't afford it.

Is Nixon the One? 

By Miti'k Wiederandcrs- - - 
Like thousands ofother Ameri- 
can young people, I was very 
disappointed that Eugene McCar- 
thy was denied the Democratic 
nomination and that neither of 
the two major candidates for 
President offers a true '*peace 
alternative." The reality of the 
present situation, however, is 
that on Nov. 5 either Richard 
Nixon or Hubert Humphrey will 
be elected President. There are 
many strong differences in the 
two men besides their Vietnam 
positions. I have chosen Hum- 
phrey as the best of the two can- 
didates for the foUowng reasons: 
0) Running Mates. Sen, Muskie 
Is an extremely intelligent man 
(one of the few Phi Beta Kappas 
in Washington) who has demon- 
strated as a Senator and In his 
campaign that he could, if neces. 
sary, step into the Presidency 
should anything happen to HHH, 
He has shown a calm sense 
of commaiid and a respect for 
the opinions of others, two qual. 
ifies that made John Kennedy such 
a popular President, 

Agnew has simply not shown 
this potential, since theconven- 
tion his campaign has been a 
series of embarrasing blunders 
and I'm-sorry-I-didn't-mean-to- 
say that's. His remark Uiat "If 
you've seen one slum, you've 
seen them all" and his intern- 
perate rantings about widespread 
Communist conspiracies on col- 
lege campuses have shown both 
a lack of diplomacy and a serious 
lack of accurate knowledge. 

Since Nixon has promised a 
"thorough housec leaning" of the 
Cabinet, I am very skeptical of 
his judgment concerning ap- 
pointments In the light of Spiro 

(2) Personal History, I am of 
the opinion that there is no such 
thing as a "new Nixon" and that 
neither he nor Hubert Humphrey 
has changed overnight. Richard 
Nixon has merely learned to keep 
his mouth shut at the right times. 
It is rather interesting to note 
that while Humphrey was risk- 
ing his political career in push- 

Ing for civil rights measures in 
the early 1950*s, Nixon was ac. 
tively engaged In Joe McCarthy's 
witch-hunting crusade, 

(3) Domestic Issues, Nixon has 
stated that he would scrap most 
of the Poverty Programs of the 
current administration and turn 
such responsibility over to "pri- 
vate enterprise," Private enter- 
prise, however, has shown little 
previous concern in the complex 
urban, racial, and educational 
problems which threaten us to- 
day. Programs such as Head 
Start and the Job Corps, while 
in constant need of improvement 
and evaluation, have given hun- 
dreds of ghetto youngsters the 
first real opportunities of their 
lives. It would seem rather crass 

to drop such programs in mid- 
stream before more successful 
means of dealing with such pro- 
blems have been proven, 

(4) Foreign Policy, The nu- 
clear arms race is sinister and 
suicidal. Consider the fact that 
never before In the history of 
the world has a large group 
of weapons simply been scrap, 
ped, and that there already exists 
enough nuclear weaponry to kill 
every human on the face of the 
earth. Yet Nixon wants to "de- 
lay" ratification of the non-pro- 
liferation treaty. He seems to 
retain the same old "fear theory" 
of world diplomacy which was 
officially held 15 years ago, I.e., 
that our continued superiority in 
the nuclear arms race will some- 
how make other powers feel that 
war with the U.S. is unthinkable, 
Korea and Vietnam, it seems, 
have taught us that this just is 
not so. I would hope that swift, 
effective, universal nuclear con- 
trol would be the goal for any 
Presidential aspirant. 

So if you sincerely believe that 
there is no dilference in the two 
candidates, consider the reasons 
I have mentioned above. You may 
consider after all that Hum- 
phrey's the one. 

which has established their repu- 
tation as one of today's most 
vital, earthy, and alive theatre 

El Teatro Campeslno, a bi- 
lingual theatre, was created to 
teach and organize the farm work- 
ers. For their presentation at 
the Thousand Oaks campus, they 
will present their humorous 
"Actos," or skits which are the 
vehicle through which the pro* 
blems of the worker, the strike, 
and the union are dramatized. 
Director Luis Valdez has found 
that although the "use of come- 
dy originally stemmed from the 
necessity of lifting the striker's 
morale, we found we could make 
social points, not in spite of the 
comedy, but through It." El Tea. 
tro has won awards at the New- 
port Folk festival, an Oble award, 
and has appeared belcraiiie Se- 
nate Subcommittee on Migratory 
Labor. Though they recently com. 
pleted a very successful engage* 
ment at the Ash Grove, Teatro 
Is still basically concerned with 
performing for the farm workers 
in their own communities. 

In 1967, Teatro established a 
culture center In Del Rey, Call, 
fbmia. Self-supporting, the cen- 
ter strives to regain the personal 
and racial dignity of the Mexi- 
can-American, Proceeds from 
this performance are earmarked 
to further these goals. 

Tickets for the performance 
are on sale at Firebird Books 
in the Safeway mall, and at the 
Village Bookstore at Conejo Vll- 
lage. Prices are $2,00 for adults 
and 50 cents for students with 
I.D. cards. For further informa.

Praises Youth 

Paul, In an audience yesterday, 
said "The new generation de- 
serves praise" for Its rebellion 
against '^traditional hypocri- 

Tlie Pope called youngpeople's 
reactions in protests and demon- 
strations "unleashed against 
well-being, against the bureau- 
cratic and technological order, 
against a society deprWedofsup. 
erior and really human Ideals, 
perhaps the result of Insuffer* 
ance of psychological, moral and 
spiritual mediocrity. . .against 
the impersonal uniformity of our 
surroundings as modem civiliza- 
tion has made them."

Thumper Features: 

Hippie Scene-Paradox and Dilemma 

Kerry Denman 

Speaking to the student twdy in Thursday's special convocation, Dr. Lewis Yablonsky, professor 
of sociology at Valley State College, told of some of his experiences while writing a book, Tlie H^jpie 
Trip. He began by recalling a visit to a hippie pad in Agoura. He had gone there to visit a former 
probation officer named Gridley who had turned hippie and was living with about fifteen other hippies 

in this house. During his visit, 
many of the hippies tripped out, 
charged up on marijuana. Yab- 
lonsky told how drugs were as a 
sacrament to a religion for the 
hippie; they were passports to an 
existential state wherein the indi> 
vldual tried to achieve cosmic 
consciousness and become apart 
of the flow of the cosmos. 

He described the paradox and 
dilemma of the hippie scene. 
Some parts of the social move- 
ment are filled with fascinating 
new views of life, a reaction for* 
mation to the plastic society of 
white middle class America com- 
posed of people sincere in thefr 
search for newness. The hang, 
up is the great number of just 
plain dope fiends that get in the 
movement. He described hippies 
in three categories — the high 
priests, the Clark Kent or week- 
end hippie, and the teeny bopper 
running away from home. 

In the summer of 1967, he lived 
In a hippie pad In the east village. 
He commented that the best re* 
search approach he found while 
working with these people was 
honesty. He stressed the impor- 
tance of coming to the hippie as 
a real person, not trying to imi- 
tate them for the sake of re- 
search. He described some of 
his experiences in this sub.pov- 
erty tenement house. 

Yablonsky commented about 
some of the philosophies of 
the hippies. First, the Hippie 
movement is the only movement 
in history that completely de- 
nounces all of the Institutions of 
society. Hippies have left the re- 
ligion in America and now use 
the eastern ones because they are 
more intense. Family life Is de- 
nounced; the hippie seeks a tribal 
or extended communal life. Sex 
is thou^t to be just one aspect 
of life and no taboos are placed 
on it. The hippies denounce all

governmental structure; theyare 
anarchlests and preach the con- 
cept of *T3o your own thing." 
Economically, the hippies place 
themselves in poverty, a gesture 
with religious implications. Love 
is their central theme; the move 
to the hippie scene is a reaction 
formation from no love of people 
to total love of all people. 

He stressed the importance of 
realizing that many of the hippies 
came from the middle class situa- 
tion to the liippie pads. These 
people left their comfortable sit- 
uations because they felt that 
society was through, that there 
was no point in getting educated 
into the molds of the plastic so- 
ciety, having the plastic family 
and life style. The effect of the 
hippie movement on American 
society has forced intelligent peo- 
ple to look at society critically. 
Crime and riots in the street 
are attempts to change society — 
the hippies feel there is not 
enough good left to even bother 
with, so they drop out completely, 
America must see if they're real- 
ly a plastic society, full of game 
players and if so, try to correct 
the situation.

The Legend 




by Bill Bowers 

Beasley Trueheart, boy reviewer, knows a student here at CLC 
whose father Is footing the bills so that one day he will be able 
to take over the family business. In fact, he's gotten so good now, 
Beasley claims, that whenever the company has a business meet- 
ing, they call that CLC student to mix the cocktails. 

Plugged Out 

"Electric Ladyland**, the new Jlml Hendrlx LP (Reprise 2RS 
6307) is something of a disappointment, 

Hendrlx is stlU by far the best guitarist around. But the mistake 
was in attempting to stretch the album into two records, giving too 
much of a feeling that some of the psychedelia is more fUllng 

than fulfUllng. ^ _. . 

What a pity that Hendrlx, who came to prominence by Introducing 
a new sound is now trying to sound like everybody else. 

It must be said that Hendrlx worked here with some of the best 
musicians around; among them Al Kooper and Steve Wlnwood. 

But this third LP is cover^g no ground that wasn't covered 
by the first two. The effects are all echoes of effects heard earlier. 

■nie Jimi Hendrlx Experience Is still a notch above most of the 
other groups around, but it holds this position through Hendrlx 
tremendous talent, and not throu^ this album.

Take this album for example. Thirteen songs, all of them good

Jamaican, Indian, Moroccan, tolk, rock, lolk-rock, ank even a touch 

of Dixieland. Some people have no respect lor boy reviewers.

Comment on Trueheart 

Dear Editor: 

I would like to make a few 
comments concerning the inform- 
ation given these past weeks in the 
"entertainment" column. I, and 
a majority of people, agree that 
Mr, Bowers, or Truehart, isn't 
very educated on the subject of 

He mentioned the great ability 
of a group of musicians called 
Kensington Market. Being from 
San Francisco, I have seen many 
bands, and unfortunately the Mar- 
ket was one of them, 

An^ as for the Grateful Dead 
being "dead," they are one of 
the most active bands in S.F.Mr. 
Bowers complained about their 
songs running together. If he 
knows anything about music he 
should realize it's harder to go 
from one song to another without 
stopping than it Is to have a 
break. Jerry Garcia is one of 
the few great guitar players 
around. Especially considering 
he is missing one of his fingers. 
And contrary to Mr. Bowers* 
skepticism, the album was re- 
corded live in parts, and If he 
wants to hear an audience reac- 
tion, he should visit the Carousel 
Ballroom when the Grateful Dead 
are playing. 

The Electric Flag Is a bad 
group? Listen to them Hve, Mr. 
Bowers. Even without Bloom> 

Lastly, if you're looking for a 
good debut album besides Ken* 
slngton Market try Jeff Beck's 
Truth, Country Weather, Dlno 
Valente, and many more. And 
I suggest, Mr. Bowers, that you 
take the cotton from your ears 
and listen to what's really going

Dear Ed: 

There Is a great deal in what you say, Beasley Trueheart Is in- 
tended to bring news of new releases and Indications of their rela. 
tlve quality, but not to be the final omnipotent word on what Is good 
or bad, I'm sorry If you got that Impression. 

But there Is always a need for Improvement too, and Beasley will 
try to be better.

CLC Upends Simon Fraser C.L.C. is 

and Travels to Oxy 

A highly touted Simon Fraser University team traveled from 
Vancouver British Columbia to TTiousand Oaks, to find out what a 
lot of Califomians already know, California Lutheran College can 
play mighty fine football. The Kingsmen rolled to their 5th win of 
the season by soundly thrashing 

the Clansmen 38-17. 

CLC takes to the road for a 
crucial encounter with the now 
healthy Occidental Tiger at 8:00 
p,m. Saturday at Patterson Field 
in Eagle Rock. 

Occidental leads the series 2-1, 
but suffered a 20-14 loss to CLC 
last season. 

The CLC defense dominated the 
SFU game. All-American Gary 
Loyd will probably be named All- 
Canadian as he played mostof the 
day in the Simon Fraser Univer- 
sity backfield. 

Senior defensive end Loyd 
blocked a punt, returned a kick- 
off 70 yards for a score, punted 
six times fora54,3yardaverage, 
kicked off, had 12 unassisted tack- 
les and led a pass rush that led to 
four Fraser passes being inter- 

Wayne Holm was one of the 
leaders in Collegiate passing be- 
fore Saturday. He was rated as 
the best home grown Canadian 
QB ever, Loyd and the CLC de- 
fense made him into a mere mor- 
tal. He was constantly rushed off 
his feet and had time to complete 
only 13 of 38. He had a much bet- 
ter day against the number one 
NAIA team New Mexico High- 

The four Kingsmen inter- 
ceptions add up to quite a story, 
CLC now has 26 interceptions in 
six games. TTie NAIA season re» 
cord is 31 and the all-time re- 
cord for American football is 
37, set by Hardin-Simmons in 
1951, CLC has a chance at both. 

TTie victory was a costly one 
as CLC QB Fob Fulenwider is 
lost to the team indefinitely with 
a concussion and probably skull 
fracture. Fulenwider was ex. 
periencing one of his finest days 
in the purple and gold with 10 of 
15 completions for 145 yards and 
one TD before being injured in the 
third quarter. 

Robert Howell or Al Jones will 
fill in for FiUenwIder. Jones hit 
on 6 for 8 in a sub role Saturday 
and has come along well in re* 
cent days. 

Joe Stouch, who was named as 
the Southern California Sports- 
writers Back-of-the-Week against 
La Verne College, had another 
fine day, gaining 134 yards in 22 
carries. Stouch, a junior back 
from Lompoc, has 535 yards 
in 96 carries this year for a 
fine 5.6 yard per play average. 
For CLC and Coach Bob Shoup, 
it marked their 33rd win In their 
last 40 starts, dating back to 1964, 
Tlie lone 1968 loss was to Red- 
lands early in the season, 22-7. 
In six games, CLC has averaged 
377 yards per game total offense 
and scored 32 points per game. 
CLC is currently nationally 
ranked in rushing offense in the 
NAIA stats in I6th position. Rival 
Occidental is rated the 28th best 
offensive team in the nation and 
will provide a big test for CLC's 
defense that has allowed only 217 
yards per game. 

Occidental knocked CLC from 
the ranks of the unbeaten in 1966, 
CLC was on a 13 game winning 
streak and ranked number six 
in the country in the NAIA rat- 
ings. Oxy was not impressed and 
won out 16-0, 

Occidental will hold a slight 
weight advantage and probably a 
speed plus in backs Gene Moore 
and Ed Hada plus flanker Steve 
Auerbach. Although Oxy is only 
1-3-1 on the year, they are on top 
in the SCIAC and hold a big 
20-8 win over Whittler. CLC 
beat Whittler 38-23 in the only 
common opponent faced this year. 
CLC is 5-1 and may rate a slight 
favorite by game time. The loss 
of Bob Fulenwider may even out 
the odds considerably.

ie K end Malcolm Boyd at the 1968 

the auditorium at 3 p.m., it was 
announced this week by John Guth, 
CLC student academic affairs 

Father Boyd, the "Night Club 
Chaplain" who has become known 


worked for an advertising agency 
In Hollywood, and was the first 
president of the Television Pro- 
ducers Association. His begin- 
ning studies for the Episcopalian 
priesthood caused quite a stir In 
the Hollywood community. Father 
Boyd was a chaplain at Colorado 
State University — ^where he car- 
ried his ministry to campus cof- 
fee shops and beer joints — and 

Highlighting tonight's '*Ballad 
of the Klngsmen" activities was 
the crowning of the 1968 Home- 
coming Queen and her court. 

l^e five candidates, Sue Tern- 
pleton, Diane Peterson, Julie 
Menzles, Darlene Alley, and Nan- 
cy Berg, were Introduced to the

ence shortly after 7 p.m. this 

Festivities for this year's 
Homecoming began at 3 p.m. 
this afternoon In the CLC gym-

colm Boyd, Jr. spoke during the 
convocation held then. Rev. Boyd 
is a noted Episcopalian minister, 
campus chaplain, and author of 
Are You Running With Me, 

Jesus? and Free To Live, Free

Following the coronation cere-

Campus Chest Introduces Josefa 

"Ballad of the Klngsmen" is 
a great theme for this festive 
weekendl There are many verses 
in the "Ballad" I'm sure, and an 
important one is about a Bra- 
zilian child named Josefa. 

Josefa Goncalves dos Santos 
is a t2-year-old girl In Brazil 
that the students of CLC Sl^)- 
port through the Christian Child- 
ren's Fund, Inc. Her sponsor- 
ship payments of $12 a month are 
provided through the Campus 
Chest Committee, Where does 
Campus Chest get their money? 
From you, the student body. 

The supporting of an orphan 
was Initiated last year. Tlien, 
we were su[q;)ortIngMarlaAbadla 
Lopez, However, Maria was able 
to get a Job to support herself 
and CCF gave us Josefa to sup- 
port. Let me tell you some things 
about JosefeL. She has never had 
the benefits of a normal, happy 
family life. Her mother died some 
time ago and after that her father 
had a dreadful time trying to 
support and care for his family. 
He managed for a time, but then 
the life of poverty and hardship, 
proved too much for the man and 
death claimed him too. Others 
cared for the girl until they too 
could no longer provide for her. 
She is now desperately In need 
of help with her clothing and edu- 
cational expenses. 

The offering taken at the Home. 

comLng WorshlpServIce last year 
was given over to Campus cfhest 
tor the child support payments. 
Campus Chest requested for the 
offering again this year, and the 
request was granted. 

Please help Josefa smile, 
knowing that she has an Ameri- 
can "family" who loves and sup- 
ports her. Give generously this 
Sunday morning at the Home- 
coming Worship Service. 

Tills is a copy of the letter h 
received from Josefa toward the 
last of September; 

Dearest Sponsors, 

Greetings to you. 

First of all I hope that this 
will reach you enjoying the best 
of hefUth, I was so happy to hear 
from you. 

I am having a lovely Summer, 
and you? My classes started on 
the 1st of August and 1 am in the 
1st grade. 

I am substituting Maria 
Abadia Lopes and I am happy and 
1 hope that you are going to like 
me too. 

I live In a small house with my 
uncles. My father and mother 
died, I loved them so much. But 
now I have you and I am going 
to love you a lot. 

Hugs to everybody, will close 
now, sending you a tight hug, 

I was so happy to get your 
letter and thank you for the 
card you sent me.

The President's New Car 

CHICAGO — It looks like a 
car. It sounds like a car. It goes 
like a car. 

But, really, it's a tank. 

The vehicle In question is a new 
Lincoln limousine buUt for Presi. 
dent Johnson and his successor. 
It is unlike any car on the road. 
First of all. It costs $500,000," 
which Is about$497,000 more than 
most cars go for. And second, it 
has some optional extras not 
available from your nearby deal- 

It has, for Instance, a fighter 
plane canopy and more than two 
tons of armor. This shielding is 
designed to stop a ,30-callber 
rifle bullet, a tiarrage of Molo- 

tov cocktails or both. Once In. 
side the six-ton car, claims a 
Ford Motor Co., spokesman, 
the President wUl be '♦perfect- 
ly safe from a small-scale mili- 
tary attack," The window glass 
and the plastic bubble top canopy, 
all bulletproof, are thicker than 
the glass and the plastic used in 
Air Force fighter planes. 

The limousine runs on four 
heavyduty Firestone truck tires. 
Inside each tire Is a large steel 
disk with a hard-rubber thread, 
which would allow the limou- 
sine to be driven up to 50 miles 
at top speeds with all fbur tires

Purple Crue 

One of the most fantastic albums to come out in recent weeks 
has been by England's Deep Purple. Entitled "Shades of Deep 
Purple" (Tetragrammaton T.102) It displays the group as one of 
the most potent new musical forces In this country. This group 
is so hot, It's a wonder their Instruments don't melt. 

Introduced in concert a the Forum with the Cream, the group 
held Its own nicely against formidable competition. 

Like the Cream the group specializes in long instrumental 
solos. Deep Purple's solos iiowever are more akin to the one- 
at<a-tlme modem jazz approach, than the Cream's Palestrlna-llke

ivory Power 

Ivory, another new groif) on Tetragrammaton Records (who 
seem fo have more new grot4}s than Lassie has fleas) is a new 
direction In group sounds. 

It Juxtaposes for the most part, the heavy throb of an electric 
guitar with the soft wlspiness of the voices. Kind of like having 
the Mamas & Papas sing lite West Coast Pop Art Experimental 
Band Song Book; or having Connie Francis sing Frank Zappa 

"nie sounds are good, the songs are good, but if this group 
has a real forte, it's looking weird, Walt until you see this album 
cover: The two guys look like villains In an Italian,, David. 
the^Gladlator movie. The girl looks like David the Gladiator. 

But all dubbing aside, the best songs are ""nuught" and *1, Of 
the Garden," 

lUs is definitely one piece of Ivory that won't tw consigned 
to the Elephant's Graveyard.

Quality Important 

Dear Editor, 

Please put us on the list of re* 
gular ECHO subscribers and 
readers. We want very much to 
receive the ECHO on a regular 
basis so we can get a glimpse 
of what is happening in T.O. 

Our ECHO doesn't compare 
to Long Beach State's "49*er" 
In quantity and frequency of pub- 
lication. However, it Is quality 
of material and format which 
should be of most Importance. 
The other two attributes mention- 
ed can come with time. 

Mr, & Mrs. Steven Wilier 
CLC alumni, presently at Long 
Beach State College 


Dear Mr. Editor: 

Thai 'c you for your prompt res- 
ponse Jid comments on my let- 
ter. Correspondence obviously 
does not easily convey one's 
spirit. I am sorry that you say 
"I do not wish to engage In . . . 
communication," Quite the con* 
trary, I do, or I should not have 
written to you. 

Communication does not re* 
quire that I agree with another 
man's sense of propriety — or 
lack of it. Neither does commu- 
nication Is this day of revolution 
require that I promote sin, Jesus 
companled and communicated 
with prostitutes, thieves, extor- 
tioners, demented, outcasts, mi- 
nority groups and majority 
groups, pious and impious, not 
to participate In or condone their 
sin, but to help. 

To say the al>ove Is not to infer 
that I am better than my fellow 
sinners. I, too, go to the cross 
daily for forgiveness and for the 
ability to walk In the steps of 

Please to not accuse me of un- 
willingness to communicate but 
do not make one of the conditions 
participation In vulgarity or Im- 
propriety, Senator McCarthy ap- 
parently communicates but I don't 
think his standards are compro- 

I also find It difficult to dicho- 
tomize as you seem to do when 

you disassociate the "Moimt- 
clef Echo" from CLC and at the 
same time say that It Is a pub- 
lication of the Associated Stu- 
dents of California Lutheran Col- 

Thank you tov taking time to 
read this letter, I hope that It 
does not further widen the com- 
munications gap. 
Your sincerely, 
Ernest R, Drews, pastor 
Trinity Evangelical Lutheran 
Church, Reseda, California 

P,S. — Please enter my sub- 
scription to the "Mountclef 
Echo." Your publication doesnot 
name the price, so please blU 

Rev, Drews, 

Your letter does not widen 
the communication gap, nor does 
It close it any. I think you are 
avoiding the question. Communi- 
cation entails much more than 
writing and talking, It Involves 
listening, hearing, and under- 

You are certainly welcome to 
your personal senseofpropriety, 
just don't hang It on the altar. 
It's yours, not necessarily God's. 

I have never disassociated the 
"Mountclef Echo" from CLC, 
The "Echo" Is the official pub- 
lication of the STUDENTS of 
California Lutheran College, and 
it reflects students' thou^ts, 
hopes, beliefs, and problems. 
The '"Echo" Is NOT a public re- 
lations organ of the college; it 
does not promulgate the '"party 

Hopefully, people who hold 
your attitude will learn to com- 
municate and leave your culture 
to yesteryear.— Editor.

The Fortress Is Sleeping 

"The church today Is alive and active, a relevant force working in 
the world." HAI A lot oflts members are; unfortunately, they are not 
In a majority. The Reverend Quentln Carman, in his Founders' 
Day Convocation address on October 30, affirmed the Christians' 
active, positive role in the world. He referred to Acts, saying that 
the Christians In biblical times were "turning the world upside 
down." In the same breath, Rev, Carman castigated the church and 
Its members when he warned, "Church-related colleges across the 
country are the most conservative and least revolutionary of insti- 
tutions of higher learning," Pastor Carman went on to say, "Christ- 
ians today are terrified at the Uiou^t of the world being tilted a little, 
not to mention that it should be upside down." 

An Interesting note here — of those who regularly attend chapel 
and convocation events, nearly all of the "holy rollers" were not 
there to hear Rev. Carman, perhaps because of his "liberal" label. 
Since this convocation was well-publicized in advance, the apparent 
conclusion Is that these people didnot wish to hear anything with which 
they might disagree, or which might prod them into thinking outside 
of their normal rut, er — tralnof thought. As evidence of their desire 
not to listen to Pastor Carman, several of these Christ-killers were 
seen walking away from the convocation, passing the post office sign 
advertising It. Hie truth hurts; so does thinking. 

Throughout his convocation address. Rev. Carman encouraged 
the students to use their intellect. He also warned them against bas- 
ing their faith on the negative. At various points Reverend Garmai% 
a founding fellow and regent since the beginning, of California 
Lutheran College, reiterated that It was not the intention of the found- 
ers of CLC that this Institution be a religious ghetto, with Its dwel- 
lers chanting, "This Is the temple of the Lord. ITils Is the temple 
of the Lord, This is the temple of the Lord." 

He admonished us for sometimes selling "the Gospel down the 
drain to preserve a spurious peace," Rev. Carman slammed the 
church for thinking of itself as a fortress or as being apart from 
the rest of the world. "The church is not to be an ambulance service," 

he said. 

Rev. Carman Is not the only man of his kind in the church. There 
are many energetic, concerned people within the Christian ranks. 
All too often they are shunnedbythe "established church" (or as one 
student put It "the hierarchy of angels"), CLC Is no exception for 
shunning or slighting those who are the real life of the church. A 
person who rocks the boat, climbs out of a churchy rut, or **tums 
the world upside down" is not appreciated by the sel(>styled, godly 

Many persons,partlcularly among youth, are leaving the ohurcb 
today, and because the church has Identified itself as being synono- 
mous with God, they are leaving God. This is largely a result of 
the church's failure to communicate — Chapel and Sunday sermons 
are often hollow, devoid of real meaning. In too many instances, 
the church has become a figurehead for comfort; (superficial as it 
may be), and it Is not being the vital force it is Intended to be. 

All too much of the Christian church is far from being truly active 
and relevant In the world. What some people call Its "activity" in 
the problems of today Is merely the sleeping fortress lifting an 
eyelid to see what is happening at the foot of Its bed. Christians had 
better stop chanting comfortably, "This Is the temple of the Lord," 
They had better be on the move, regardless of any scars which 
they may acquire. Tlie church must become relevant or its mat- 
tress will smother it.

Military Moves To Punish Gl Marchers 

Saturday. Oct. 12, 15,000 people 
Joined a GI march and rally In 
San Francisco against the war 
In Vietnam. About 500 active-duty 
GIs participated, some of them 
In uniform. 

The GI organizers and leaders 
of this Impressive demonstration 
are now threatened with punish- 
ment by the military, A massive 
protest is expected. 

Lt. Susan Schnall of the Oak- 
Knoll Naval Hospital In Oak- 
land faces court-martial, on the 
charges that she wore her uni- 
form In the GIs for Peace de- 
monstration and that she parti- 
cipated In dropping leaflets on 
military Installations in the Bay 
Area '^vhich leaflets urged mem- 
bers ofarmedtorcesof the United 

States to attend and participate 
in a public demonstration intend- 
ed to impair the morale, discip. 
line, and loyalty of said armed 
forces, such conduct being un- 
becoming an officer. 

Airman First Class Michael 
Locks has been restricted to 
Hamilton Air Force Base pend- 
ing court-martial for disobeying 
an order, presumably because he 
wore his uniform at the antiwar 

Another Glleaderof the march, 
Lt, Hugh Smith, Is being haras- 
sed by the military for his part 
In the demonstration. 

The GI Civil Liberties Defense 
Committee has sent telegrams to 
Schnall and Locks' commanding 
officers, vigorously protesting 

the unconstitutional action 
against them and demanding that 
all harassment of GIs who parti- 
cipated In last Saturday's march 
cease Immediately.

In Defense Of Pride 

Pride, in the words and wrltlngsof most major religions, Is regard- 
ed as a sin. Read any great religious scripture or go to any worship 
services and sooner or later, in some form or another, you wUl find 
pride condemned, denounced, repudiated, or In some manner made to 
look as though it were something to be avoided like the plague, I do not 
intend to ridicule religion, least of aU at a religious institution. 
Honesty and candor dictate, though, that I state that I am not a 
Christian; that I am opposed to Christianity as I understand it, for 
several reasons. One reason Is that I believe In pride. 

In his recent book, entitled TheAntecedentsofSeU-Esteem, Stanley 
Cooper Smith sUtes that pride — or as he calls It "seU-esteem — 
Is a sense of adequacy, or a sense of worth. It is essential to an 
adult human being. Without pride, one feels unworthy and is not able 
to give or receive love. He feels ashamed, depressed, and cannot 
really be himself. Pride, according to the author, is developed In 
chUdhood, and Is necessary for a sense of reality, for capability of 
judgement, creaUvlty, and happiness. In short, as many psychla- 
trlsts have affirmed, pride, or self-esteem, is necessary for mental 


Pride is a person's recognition that he Is his own highest value; 
and It Is his willing acknowledgement and practice of the virtues 
required to ommote that value. 

Just as the opposite of health is sickness, so the opposite of pride 
Is mental self-immolation — often referred to as **hunilUty." 

I believe in pride. My soul and spirit shudder In contempt against 
any doctrine which says that I must play the part of a sacrificial 
animal, or which tells me — the the name of virtue — that I must 
sacrifice myself for the benefit of the State, the Race, the Prole- 
tariat — or my fellow man. A man's highest goal, morally, is the 
achievement of his own happiness; and pride is his recognition that 
he Is worth of accomplishing and enjoying that goal. 



The surest way to prevent se- 
ditions is to take away the mat- 
ter of them; for if there be fuel 
prepared, it is hard to tell whence 
the spark shall come that shall 
set on fire.

Bringing It 
All Back Home 

by Ed Moe 

llie campaign oratory has 
passed and you've made your 
political decisions. But I think 
It's time we placed a (ew things 
In proper perspective In search 
of a better humanity. 

The War in Vietnam has caused 
untold human suffering and 
wretchedness which will continue 
to plague us as a world power 
for years to come. Estimates 
have It that somewhere between 
$80-$100 billion dollars has been 
spent on this war. Hundreds of 
thousands of soldiers have been 
maimed or crippled, and close 
to 30,000 have been killed. Fi- 
guring six feet per casket, that's 
a slngle-fUe line stretching al- 
most thlrty>four miles. Bodies 
return from Vietnam to Travis 
Air Force Base at Fairfield, 
California, where they are un. 
loaded and stacked five by six on 
pallets which are picked up by 
forklifts and moved to storage 
areas, where Identifying name- 
cards arc removed and other 
details are attended to. You might 
call it the "personal touch." 

Do you think this Is somewhat 
too systematic to suit you? Yes, 
but one woman handling the name- 
cards had no qualms when she re- 
marked that "death Is a way of 
life." Somewhat paradoxical, and 
yet I imagine our passive accept- 
ance of the whole brutal process 
affirmed her contention and yet 
dehumanized all of us In the pro- 
cess. As they will tellyouatyour 
local draft board, "It's nothUig 
personal, you understand." Yet 
this Is the principal problem — 
the fact that people were 
once again afraid to become In- 
volved. Now we have to ask: 
where were we when all of this 
was taking place? Were we all 
somewhat too complacent? 

Remember John Donne's 
famous statement: 
"If a clode be washed to the 
sea, England is the lesse 
Every man's death diminishes 
me • . ■ 

Do not ask for whom the bell 
tolls — It tolls for thee" 

The ^raft and corruption In 
Vietnam represent a way of life 
tor those Involved, Naturally, 
they do not wish for the war to 

But now that It might end, what 
would be the effects of peace 
upon our country? Young people 
would get a better break, as they 
have borne the principal physical 
burdens of the war. Extension of 
the surtax would be less likely, 
"niere would be an end to the 
destruction and misery causedby 
war. Balance of payments would 
improve; Interest rates would 
probably be relaxed. This could 
lead to busUiess expansion. Con- 
sumer confidence would be re- 
stored and consumption of con- 
sumer durables would pick up. 
It's a bull market, except for 
the armament Issues which have 
begun to slip lately. 

We could expect strong busi- 
ness expansion in almost all 
areas — construction, savings 
and loans, and stocks, especial- 
ly those having to do with consu- 
mer durables such as autos and 
appliances. There would be sta- 
bilization of Interest rates and 
increased Investment by foreign- 
ers once other countries see we 
are ready to go back to business 
after the war. We could further 
scientific development and re- 
search and seek to upgrade our 
nation culturally through the 
study of history and the human- 
ities, as well as other subjects. 
Graduate schools would not sweat 
the draft, nor would employers. 

To say we can have "guns and 
butter" Is an economically fal- 
lacious argument. If what we have 
suffered through during the John- 
son administration was a "Great 
Society," then we now have the 
possibility of being a fantastic 

Doves seem to be holding all 
the cards; semantic quibbling Is 
over methods of withdrawal. Af- 
ter ail, we are not prepared to 
fight a Thirty Years War or 
Hundre.d Years War. The Ameri- 
can people should make it clear 
that they want the old warmon- 
gers out and new leadership to 
come in. Don't attach all your 
significance to your vote, but 
rather to what you as an Indi- 
vidual can do to change the course 
of events. Make Moral Re-Ar- 
mament work.

El Teatro Campensino 

Reveals Spirit Of People 

by Nancy Pingree 

"El Theatre Campeslno," 
which performed here last Fri- 
day, revealed the spirit of a striv- 
ing and struggling people. This 
group represented the striking 
farm-workers and quite success- 
fully conveyed their feelings and 
their grievances. Through the 
means of ballads and humorous 
skits, they told the story of the 
Mexican people, what a farm- 
worker's life Is like, and why they 
are striking. Though the skits 
were funny, they related the cri- 
sis behind the strikes in the De- 
lano area. 

They told of the small percent 
of "the growers" and how they 

make more money by not planting 
crops then the much larger per- 
cent of oeoDle on welfare who 
really need It . They told of how the 
money makers, the large corpor- 
ations could manipulate the 
small people for their own Inter- 
ests. And they also told of how 
the rich San Joaquin Valley Is 
actually retarded because of the 
lack of good schools, libraries, 
recreational areas; and l>ecause 
of the abundance of shanty towns 
and human desperation. Even 
though part of the acts were given 
in a language the majority of the 
audience was not able to under- 
stand, the spirit and meaning of 
what was being said could still

be felt and understood. 

For three years they have been 
striking for something they refer 
to as bring brutally basic, and 
that is the right to organize — 
to organize a union for a decent 
wage. They are fighting and at 
last they are getting somewhere. 
TTiroughout this century they have 
tried five times to be heard and 
five times they have been squash, 
ed. Finally they are being heard 
and their cause Is getting support 
by people who care. 

One member of the group men- 
tioned that this performance did 
not belong on the stage, rather It 
belonged In the picket lines and 
flat-bed trucks with the people 
most deeply involved. Yet, they 
came here to inform the public, 
whose suKwrt will ultimately de- 
termine the success of '*the 

The final presentation was as 
epic ballad related with slides 
and music. This ballad effective- 
ly told the story of the Mexican- 
Americans; a people tryhig to 
establish dignity and pride in 
their Indian heritage while flut- 
ing for their cause. These peo« 
pie refuse to be assimilated Into 
a society of "sterilized souls." 
The power of their spirit seems 
to match that of the black people, 
who In many respects are 
flghthig tor the same things. A 
number of the performers wore 
clenched fist buttons — a symbol 
of power. Though this symbol Is 
usually associated with Black 
Power, it is still pertinent to the 
Huelgistas and their struggle.

CLC Blanks Oxy - 

Prepares For Cal Western University 


Ttioiis.ind O.iks ii9', oaSJ 

CLC dominated all phases of 
the game and handed the Tigers 
their first shut-out in 39 games 
and their worst licking since 
1959, The Klngsmen from TTiou- 
sand Oaks were alert and eager 
to play and Oxy proved to be 
good hosts, commltlng numerous 
errors and allowing CLC to have 
the ball 75 plays to 57 for the 
-■ Tigers. 

The story of the game could 
be spelled out in capital letters 
Gary Loyd and supporting cast. 
Loyd, the senior All.Amerlcan 
end from Torrance, was a dy- 
namic force defensively for 
CLC, His punt block set up the 
first score and his constant 
harassment of Occidental QB's 
enabled Oxy to complete only 
three of 16 pass attempts. 

Loyd was named as Klngsman 
Linemen-of- the- Week for the 
third time in four weeks. Senior 
tackle Roger Hahn was also 
singled out for special praise 
bv the CLC coaching staff. 

Any lingering doubts about the 
ability of the California Lutheran 
College football team were dis- 
pelled Saturday night at Patterson 
Field in Eagle Itock as the once 
beaten Klngsmen overwhelmed 
Occidental 29^ to extend their 
mark to 6-1. 

Jones was tabbed as Back-of- 
the Week for his efforts. He had 
put on a super show as Bruce 
Nelson, Joe Stouch and Brian 
Jeter, the regulars in the of. 
fenslve backfleld had great 
games. Senior halfback Don Kin- 
cey had two Interceptions. 

Diminutive Junior Robbie 
Etobinson broke the CLC scorine 

mark with 17 points. He scored 
a touchdown, kicked three PAT's 
and was good on all three field 
goal attempts from 33, 31, and 
30 yards out. He now leads all 
CLC scorers this season with 
64 points. 

The Klngsmen cannot afford to 
look back on Oxy as tough Cal 
Western comes up from San Diego 
with a rou^ ball club of their 
own. The Westerners are 3«3 
on the year, although all of their 
defeats have been at the hands 
of large state colleges, 

Cal Western bopped CLC 37-12 
last year in their inaugural meet- 
Ing. Coach Bob Dlnaberg brings 
one of the finest passing attacks 
on the west coast to the CLC 
Homecoming festivities. Thecol- 
llsion of the Cal Western pass 
offense vs. Gary Loyd and the 
stellar CLC pass defense should 
be worth the price of admission 
alone. The game time Saturday 
is 1:30 p.m, on the CLC campus 

The Klngsmen face three of the 
very finest QB's in the western 
Unite States in their remain- 
ing three ball games, Wayne 
Clark, the 6*4", 210 pound sling. 
er from Buckeye, Arizona, is the 
best long passer the Klngsmen 
will face. The ball hungry pass 
defensive crew of CLC has gob- 
bled up 29 interceptions, Includ- 
lug three against Oxy last week, 
CLC is just 5 off the NAU sea- 
sonal mark of 34 and 7 away from 
the Ali-Tlme American football 
record of 3. 

Cal Western will provide a 
stern test for Iwth phases of the 
CLC team. The Westerners de- 
feated both Whittier and Red. 
lands, mutual CLC opponents. 
Redlands holds the lone win over 
CLC, a 22-7 early season game. 
Both squads defeated Whittier, 
Cal Western turning the trick 
22.6, while CLC won over Whit- 
tier 38.23. Cal Western beat 
Redlands 34-20, 

There were some new faces

due to Injuries, llie most re- 
markable substitute role was 
turned In by soph Al Jones from 
San Gabriel. Jones tied a school 
record for pass completions with 
17 and tossed for 222 yards In 
his first varsity game. 

Cal Western warmed-up for 
their clash with CLC by breezing 
past UCSD 34.7. Their losses 
have been to Simon Fraser 23-20, 
LA State 55-20, and Cal Poly 
San Luis Obispo 31-0. 

With 448 yards total offense 
against Occidental, the Kings- 
men now have raised their aver, 
age to 377.1 yards per game 
while allowing only 214.7 In seven 

Gary Loyd has now punted 39 
times for a 43.9 yard average. 
He w\s over 49 yards per punt 
in the Oxy game. No serious in- 
juries were sustained in the Oc- 
cidental game. Coach Bob Shoup 
is planning to start about the 
same line-up as faced Oxy. This 
would put Al Jones In place of 
Bob Fulenwlder and Bob Howell 
at QB; Don Alley and Glenn Alford 
on the defensive line. Alford was 
singled out for praise from the 
CLC staff for the game he turned 
In subbing for tackle Mike Piper. 

This will mark the final home 
appearance for sixteen seniors as 
CLC finishes up this season on 
the road against Pomona College 
and Nevada Southern University. 
Five offensive and six defensive 
starters will be included in this 
farewell appearance. Included 

are tackle John Roseth, guard 
Dave Festerllng, center Ralph 
Soderberg, end Jim Quiring, full- 
back Bruce Nelson, end Gary 
Loyd, tackles Roher Hahn and 
Glenn Alford, linebacker Bob 
Bonner and halves DaveSpurlock 
and Don Klncey, 

In the four year span this group 
played at CLC, they have been 
on the losing end only six times 
while winning 29. The 30th vic- 
tory could be the most elusive 
of an.

One college does more 
than broaden horizons. It 
sails to them, and beyond. 

Now there's a way for you to know 
the world around you first-hand. 
A way to see the things you've 
read about, and study as you go. 
The way is a college that uses the 
Parthenon as a classroom for 
a lecture on Greece, 
and illustrates Hong 
Kong's floating 
societies with an 
hour's ride on a 
harbor sampan. 

Every year Chapman College's 
World Campus Afloat takes two 
groups of 500 students out of their 
classrooms and opens up the 
world for them. And you can be 
one of the 500. Your new campus 
is the s.s. Ryndam, equipped with 
modern educational facilities and 
a fine faculty. You'll have a com- 
plete study curriculum as you go. 
And earn a fully-accredited

Phil Randall, as Pantagleize,

the play from this point on. 

The upsets of society and the 
establishment by the honest,

In the play reality is defied, but 
Its roughness finally shapes the 
destiny of Pantagleize as he en. 
counters military authority. 

CLC Downs Cal Western -- 
Faces Pomona Saturday 

The California Lutheran College football team wiU keep Its na. 
Uonal ranking f6r another week, having held on to defeat Cal 
Western from San Diego 39-34 in a Homecoming tour de force on 
the Thousand Oaks campus Saturday, 

An overflow crowd of over 
4,000 fans saw a classic strug. 
gle between two very fine foot- 
ball teams, with the final de* 
clslon hanging in balance until 
the final seconds. CLC improv- 
ed its record to 7-1, while the 
Westerners fell to 3-4. 

The Klngsmen built up an early 
lead, and midway into the third 
period led by as much as 31-7, 
Wayne Clark, stellar CWU QB, 
was not to be denied his mo- 
ment to shine and his 4th quar. 
ter herlocs almost turned the 
game around. 

The 17th ranked Klngsmen dis- 
played early foot that managed to 
make their standings among the 
National Association of Inter- 
collegiate Athletic teams look 
like they were 16 teams too low.

offense and the magnlflcant punt.

CLC built up a 24.7 half-time 
bulge, Loyd punted for an as-

Junior back, Robbie Robinson, 
kicked his way Into the record 
books by slicing thru a 20 yard 
first quarter field goal to tie a 
naUonal (NAEA) record for most 
field goals in one season, with 
his eighth three pointer. 

The ball hungry CLC pass 
defense came up with 4 inter- 
ceptions to run their season to- 
tal to 33. They had plenty of 
chances Saturday as Clark took 
to the air 53 times. Halfback 
Dave Spurlock had the two key 
interceptions which proved to 
be decisive. His first resulted 
in a 32 yard touchdown in the 
fourth period and his second 
came with a 4th and ten sltua- 
tlon and CLC holding a narrow 

five point lead with 12 seconds 
left and the ball on the CLC 20 
yard line. He returned tills pass 
for 32 yards. It was his tenth 
of the season.

Why Applaud Malcolm Boyd? 

Malcom Boyd talked about ac> 
tlvlsm and Involvement — he 
made a distinction between pa- 
ternalism and "relationship." He 
talked about our college, removed 
from the rest of the world. He 
talked about many other topics. 
In fact, he damned us in so 
many different waysl Whatamaz- 
ed me wa? that after he had ac 
cused our .alture correctly, I'm 
afraid, of everything from blind, 
ness and Ignorance to hypocrisy 
and racism, we all jumpedupand 
applauded him witha fervor rare- 
ly matched in our usual, more 
sterile Convocation programs. 

I suppose ttiat it's something 
of a catharsis, or as Father 
Boyd would say, "letting out 
the pus," to hear ourselves re- 
viled so thoroughly. I confess — 
I enjoyed every minute of it 
myself. Yet as I write this I'm 
still asking myself why I en- 
Joyed it. 

I suppose I liked his direct, 
straight-from-the-hlp style. His 
vocabulary was more varied and 
expressive than any other theo- 
logian, save perhaps our own 

Martin Luther. Andif someof you 
didn't think that some of his 
more expressive vocab was "ap- 
propriate" for an inspirational, 
take a walk down the halls of the 
men's dorm some night and com- 
pare what you hear. That so-call- 
ed "chapel" of ours Isn't very 
far from the dorm; why should 
we expect to hear ethereal talk 
day after day from inside a 
place not up in the sky some- 
where but a few hundred paces 
from the dorm?? 


Erich Fromm, the noted psycho- 
anaiyst and author, believes that 
the current "wave of aggres- 
sion" — student rebellions and 
urban riots — won't be stopped 
by police brutality. 

It will only be halted, he told 
an audience at Trinity College 
here, "by a life which permits 
people to be fully alive, fully 
active, and fully human." 

Dr. Fromm said student pro- 
tests result from "a tremen- 
dous hunger for life" among the 

by Mark Wiederanders 

This gap which we expect be- 
tween life and our religion was 
one theme which Malcom Boyd 
hit very hard. He also spoke of 
other gaps which hang us up 
today. He saw a big difference 
between "Schweitzer — like pa- 
ternalism" and true relation- 
ship with other people. He toid 
about the prim middle class wo- 
man who had periodically driven 
across town for 14 years to 
'•help poor Negroes," and how 
upset she became when that same 
area erupted in rioting, 

Boyd also talked about the fu- 
ture, about what could happen 
compared to what is now (lappen- 
ing. He contrasted the possibility 
of "renaissance" in our society 
with stagnation. And perhaps his 
most disturbine topic concern- 

ed the gap which separates 
CLC from the rest of the world, 
"Your college is way out in 
the moon," he said, and I don't 
think he was speaking of mere 
physical separation. It's easy 
enough for us to blame the foun- 
ders of this inp'itutlon for our 
somewhat uniqii-' location. But 
Father Boyd suggested that we 
have created a type of ghetto for 
ourselves, whore we can easily 
shut out the world and thereby 
avoid any risk of relationship 
witli non-Lutheran or non-col- 
legian humanity. In this way, 
we too, are culturally disadvan- 
taged, and the blame lies on our 
own heads. Upon reflection, this 
is what disturbed me the most 
about what Father Boyd had to 
say. It's nothing to cheer about. 



A Mack Senate 

by Bill Bowers 

Do your remember last year 
when the ASB Senate censured 
five people in one quarter? It 
got to the point that one campus 
wit suggested the only body on 
campus that the Senate hadn't 
censured was the Senate itself. 
Incredibly, last Wednesday night 
just such a motion was present- 
ed. Senator Scott Gordon moved 
that the Senate stand in censure 
of itself for allowing a breach 
in election code policy to exist. 
This was a topper to another 
controversial Senate meeting in 
the finest tradition of the old 
Mack Sennett, Keystone Cops, 
pie-in-the-Iace comedies. 

There was more action here 
thaji at a roller derby. 

The controversy was ignited 
by a motion presented by Ted 
Larson for Doug Hurley re- 
commending that the results of 
the second run-off election for 
Sophomore Class Senator be 
declared null and void (Hurley 
won the first run-off by two 
votes in a field of three candi- 
dates but lost the second run-off 
by 26 votes to the now-Senator 
Steve Sontum). 

It was claimed that 30 votes 
constitutes a quorum for busi. 
ness at class meetings and that 
this would also apply to elect. 

ions. The other support for the 
measure came from hearsay 
evidence from an Executive Coun- 
cil meeting. It was claimed that 
Ralf Soderberg, VP In charge of 
election.^, had stated that the 
one election would be sufficient 
to determine a new class sena. 
tor. There was never any veri- 
fication of this given. 

Much to Doug Hurley's cre- 
dit, the bill was presented to all 
Senators with plenty of time to 
think about it. Also each Sena- 
tor was contacted and filled in 
with all pertinent information 
toward making an enlightened 
decision. (Jf only more bills were 
pre'^ented In this way, we'd have 
a better Senate.) 

When the vote was taken 
though, an overwhelming major- 
ity felt that the procedure fol- 
lowed by Vice-President Soder- 
berg was scrupulously fair and 
allowed the greatest opportunity 
for members of the class to ex- 
press their choice for Senator. 

It was at this point that Sena- 
tor Scott Gordon proposed tlie 
Senate censure. It was resound, 
ingly defeated. 

Other business included the 
rescinding of a blanket "okay" 
of all expenditures over $50.00 
and the passing of the new Senate 
Code in final form.

Law And Conscience 

A peculiar doctrine has been 
making the rounds in our country 
for some time now. Respected 
men preach it, some academi- 
cians preach it, some ordained 
ministers preach it, and it comes 
from other sources equally re- 
spected, as well as from someof 
those not so respected. It is the 
doctrine which holds that an in- 
dividual's conscience cannot be 
restrained by the law, or, in other 
words, that apersonsliouidnot be 
compelled to obey a law which 
violates his conscience. 

My position regarding this doc- 
trine of conscience«above-la\v is 
simple. I reject it. 1 consider it 
suliversive, in the very deepest 
sense of that word. And I'll tell 
you why. 

First, if a person pices his 
conscience above the law, then 
he is placing himself in the hypo- 
critical — and incredibly con- 
ceited — position of claiming the 
right to vote on the laws which I 
shall obey, while reserving to 
himself the right to disobey those 
laws if his conscience so moti- 
vates him. Accordingly, just for a 
modest starter, 1 would suggest 
that those people who place con- 
science above law should re- 
nounce the right to vote, or to 
run for office. For one thing, 
why should they care which laws 
are passed if they plan to violate 
those laws whenever their con- 
sciences move them to do so?

And furthermore, they have no 
right to tell me to respect and 
obey the law if they themselves 
will not do so. 

Second, I believe it is obvious 
that if conscience is placed above 
law, then the whole concept and 
purpose of democratic law coU 
lapses, and the democracy itself 
is likely to collapse soon after- 
ward. Law, in a democracy, is 
instituted essentially to protect 
individual rights and welfare, 
promote personal and pul>Iic 
safety, and to preserve the order- 
ly functioning of the government 
and society. What would happen 
if all of this is subordinated to 
something as fickle and varying 
as conscience? One violation 
would set a dangerous precedent; 
and you take It from there. 

And speaking of dangerous pre- 
cedents, I have a few questions 
to ask those young idealists and 
sell-proclaimed bright boys who 
advocate conscience-above-law. 
If they claim the right to violate 
the law lor the purpose of, say, 
a civil rights demonstration or 

an anti-war protest, then would 
they also support the right of the 
Ku Klux Klan to violate the Civil 
Rights laws? After all, the Ku 
Kluxers are just as conscient- 
iously devoted to their racist 
position as are the anti-war pro- 
testors to their peace position, 
are they not? If war protestors 
can pour their blood on draft re- 
cords, shouldn't the American 
Nazis also be free to pour their 
blood on the membership records 

The law fori>iUs murder. But 
Sirhan B, Sirhan's conscience 

The advocates of conscience- 
above-law have, in effect, made 
conscience into a god. All right, 
then, let us look at some of the 
things which their god, eon- 
science, has wrought. It wascon- 
science which motivated the 
bloody religious persecutions of 
the Middle Ages. It was con- 
science which motivated Stalin 
and his government to carry out 
their gruesome purges, and 
wholesale slaughter of Ukrain- 
ians andkulak!^. It was conscience 
which motivated the shameful 
Salem Witchcraft Trials of the 
late 17th century. And it was con- 
science which, forcenturIes,mo. 
tivated many East Indians to 
practice the art of ritual murder 
and robbery, known as thuggee. 

The advocates of conscience- 
atx>ve-law have sometimes sug- 
gested that a healthy dose of 
conscientious mass lawbreaking 
miglit have stopped Hitler, I sug- 
gest, rather, that it was con- 
scientiously motivated mass law- 
breaking and violence which help, 
ed get Hitler started in the first 
place! It was the terrorist goon 
squads ol Hitler which helped 
condition the German people to 
accept mass lawlessness, just 
as the young idealists and power- 
hungry murder boys of the SDS 
and other such groups, are help- 
ing to condition the American 
people to a grudging expectation 
of violence and lawlessness. Con. 
science-above«law would not have 
toppled Nazi Germany, Rather, 
it was Nazi Germany where the 
doctrine of conscience-above-law 
came to power in its fullest shin- 
ing glory. 

The doctrine of consclence- is already gaining a 
toehold In our culture — and it 
Is in the same places where that 
doctrine is preached that you 
will find the young would-be con- 
centration camp guards o( a fu- 
ture Fourth Reich.

When The Roll 
Is Called Up Yonder 
I'll Be There 

Dear Editor: 

Ftrst of all, I wish to thank 
you for not using '*Pope Praises 
Youth" as a filler Item again. 
After seeing It three or four 
Issues In a row, one tends to view 
it merely as filler. 

Secondly, I wish to take issue 
with your November 8th editorial 
in using the term "holy rollers". 
This may be a trivial point, but 
one which I felt detracted from 
your otherwise fairly sound edi- 

According to Webster, a "Holy 
Roller" Is a member of a minor 
religious sect that expresses re* 
liglous emotion by making violent 
movements and sounds during 
services of worship: humorousor 
contemptuous term," If you were 
referring to the religious sect, 
you gravely misplaced your em- 
phasls. On our entire campus 
there might be two or three peo- 
ple who might qualify for that 
title because of their denomina-

tion. It is quite obvious you were 
not using the term in a "humor- 
ous" way. Therefore, I am led 
to believe that you used the term 
in a "contemptuous" way. Who 
do you label as being "holy roll- 
ers"? — those students who read 
the Bible and find meaning for 
their lives? — those who are 
evangelicals? — those who enjoy 
fellowship with one another? 
Who? It would seem that you 
meant those who regularly at- 
tend chapel and convocation 
events and happen to be "con- 
servatives." And I quote your 
"interesthig note": "of those 
who regularly attend chapel and

did not even know that Pastor 
Carman had a 'liberal" label, 
nor do I believe that many knew 
that Pastor Carman had a "11- 
beral" label.) And then you go 
on to call them (those who did not 
hear Carman) "Christ-killers."

people "Christ-killers," too. Ex-

viously aimed at those "holy 
rollers" O.e,, conservatives) 
who did not attend convocation, 
your editorial would have been 
good. But — why waste an en.

students in pejorative terms? 
Why not also castigate (while 
you're castigating) those students 
who never go to chapel or convo-

Dear Mr. Johnson: 

It would be tltttng for one to 
consider your lastparagraph(the 
"positive one") first. That para- 
graph brings to mtnd a soothing 
vision of green, rolling hills with 
a small, farming community in 
the dlstajice. Focusing upon that 
peaceful town, 1 see a white cha- 
pel with a tall, majestic steeple 
in which a bell tolls for Sunday 
services, for weddings, and for 
funerals. Flowing from this 
church, I hear a congregation 
of sweet, melodious voices send- 
ing forth the words, "When the 
roll is called up yonder, I'll be 

However, It is difficult to see 
or hear anything In your letter 
which is relevant to the contem- 
porary scenel 

The impression you give Is that 
of you placing yourself above 
others, as a Christian. Do you 
think you have a ticket to 
heaven? It sure sounds like It, 

Regarding your definition of 
holy roller — you only gave the 
first part of the definition. A 
holy roller is also "one of a va- 
rious religious groups resemb- 
ling or felt to resemble the Holy 
Rollers.'* Your omission of this 
leads me to believe you have a 
tendency to use only half-truths 
when It suits your purpose. 

Furthermore, the term holy 
roller also carries certain conno- 
tations, including fundamenta- 
lism AND the characteristic of 
being a pietist who (usually by 
self^appointment) places himself 
above others not holding his 
views. I am sure you know of more 
than a few people on this campus 
who fit this description. Although 
while assigning labels, object- 
ivity may not be one of your vir- 

The term "Christ-killers" 
does not refer to the Jewish 
people nor does It refer to per- 
sons who did not hear Rev, Gar- 
man's Founder's Day address. 
It refers to narrow-minded piet- 
ists who, by NOT honestly and 
fairly considering opinions and 
ideas other than their own, fall 
to make Christ applicable In a 

contemporary setting. Rev. Gar- 
man is not considered as being 
particularly liberal. However, he 
does belong to the Lutheran 
Church in America. Some people 
look upon LCA members as per- 
sons "going to hell in a hand- 
basket" fto borrow a phrase). 

Such pletlstlc behavior may 
temporarily offer comfort to a 
segment of the church, but It 
causes the church a loss of con- 
tact with and an alienation of peo- 
ple in general. This kills andwill 
continue to kill the effectiveness 
of the Christian church. Such 
pietism must be arrested If the 
church is to promote faith in 
God, making Him relevant to the 
people of today. 

Yes, with a minority of church 
members beingallve, active, and 
relevant today, there Is hope, 
but the reactionaries, the piet- 
ists, and the holy rollers are not 
part of that hope. 

Are you going to strike me with 
lightning now???

Further The Cause? 


Nancy Pingree's article on "El 
Teatro Campesino" was an ac- 
curate account of their perform- 
ance. However, in reportlngwhat 
happened, she failed to convey 
the appestl made to us by these 
grape workers. This was, that 
the striking grape workers need 
and request the co^iperatlon of 
the consumer In their boycott 
of California grapes. Grapes, 
picked under unsanitary condi- 
tions, by workers categorically 
denied a voice in establishing 
their own wages and or working 
conditions, are now sold In 
Thousand Oaks stores. 

Is there not something that we 
can do here In Thousand Oaks 
to further the cause? Is there 
not something that we can do to 
help many of thesepeoplethrough 
the upcoming winter, when there 
is no work or income available 
fbr them? If there is, and one 
need not search far to perceive 
what, let us do Itl

Question Roised 

Dear Sir; 

There is a question raised by 
the Boyd lecture, a question we 
tend to miss entirely when we 
focus only on the words the speak- 
er used, offensive as they ob- 
viously were to many, many peo- 
ple. What is that question? I sus- 
pect it is the same question Ca- 
mus found the people of Oran in 
his novel, TTie Plague, unable and 
unwilling to ask or even to think: 
"Is there plague here (on our 
campus, in our town, In our 

The doctor, Rieux, is meeting 
with colleagues who do not like 
his words for the pus-filled 
buboes accompanied by vomit- ' 
Ing, any more than they like his 
implication that a spiritual plague 
is the real problem of Oran. So 
the following conversation takes 
place, Rieux playing the role, let 
us say, of Boyd: 
The Prefect of Oran (the Es- 
tablishment): "Your view, I 
take It, is this. Even If It 
isn't plague, the prophylactic 
measures enjoined by law for 
coping with a state of plague 
should be put info force im- 

Rieux (Boyd): "If you insist 
on my having a 'view,' that 
conveys it accurately enough." 
The doctors confer with each 
other, Richard was their 
spokesman; "It comes to this. 
We are to take the responsi- 
bility of acting as though the 
epidemic were plague." 
Tills way of putting it met with 
general approval. 
Rieux: "It doesn't matter to me 
how you phrase it. My point 
is that we should not act as if 
there were no likelihood that 
half the population would be 
wiped out; for then it would be," 
Followed by scowls and pro- 
testations, Rieux left the com-

ter, as he was driving down a 
back street redolent of fried

dripping blood, stretched out 
her arms toward him. 
So the point would seem to be 
that the love-object thatCodprof- 
fers is seldom nice, seldom 
meets with our favor. Is in fact 

usually offensive — as offensive 
as the sins our Christ embraced. 
And the corresponding words for 
man's plaguing Inability to face 
up to his sickness of soul, they 
too will offend. But meanwhile,

Decisions! Decisions! 

One of them should be a buying decision 

As a college student, you learn lo make 
decisions. One of the most important 
should concern life insurance . . . from 
Aid Association for Lutherans, AAL is 
a fraternalife insurance society for 
Lutherans . . . and that's a big ad- 
vantage to the Lutheran student. 

When it comes to life insurance, 
Lutheran college students get a bar- 
gain. That's because of age and good 
health, and because AALs rates are 
low to begin with. 

Another reason . . , Lutheran stu- 
dents can have certain guaranteed 
purchase options that assure them of 
being able to buy additional insur- 

ance later on regardless of health. 

AAL representatives (who are Luth- 
eran) serve all 50 states and five prov- 
inces of Canada . . . we're the largest 
fraternal life insurance society in 

Take time to talk to an AAL repre- 
sentative soon. Let him show you the 
advantages of starting a life insurance 
plan at your present age. And have him 
show you how dollars saved with AAL 
do double-duty . . . provide protec- 
tion for you while helping support 
Lutheran benevolent causes. Aid Asso- 
ciation for Lutherans, where there's 
common concern for human worth.

Edmund to Assume CLC Dean's Post 

Rock Island Geologist 
To Arrive In February 

Dr. Rudolph W, Edmund of the faculty at Augustana College 
Rock Island, 111., has accepted an appointment as Dean of Cali- 
fornia Lutheran College, according to an announcement made 
by Dr. Raymond M. Olson, CLC President, 

Dr. Edmund, born at Lockrldge, Iowa, has been Chairman of 
the Division of the Sciences ; at Augustana College since 1961 and Is 

Kingsmen Set 
National Records 

There was no evidence of a 
let-down by the California Lu- 
theran College football team 
against Pomona last Saturday 
as the Kingsmen powered their 
way to a convincing 46-3 win in 
preparation for their showdown 
with Nevada Southern University 
in the season finale. 

There were fears that CLC 
would look ahead to the unde- 
feated Rebels and get sidetrack- 
ed by Pomona. It had happened 
in 1966 when Pomona upset CLC 
40-14. No such ambush mater- 
ialized at Alumni Field In 1968, 
as the Sagehens went meekly 
into the Kingsmen's victory bag 
as number 8 on the year, 

Nevada Southern was obviously 
lohlclng ahead a lso as (hey sput- 
UWfl U) k 2B-(! 'Win over fledgling 
University of California at San 
Diego, This is the first year of 
football for both clubs. 

Coach BUI Ireland has put 
together an awesome collection 
of Junior college and transfer 
talent at NSU and his players 
are certainly having a fun year. 
Tliey are averaging 32 points 
a game and have only been close- 
ly pressed twice all year. 

The Rebels are not as big as 
some of the iOngsmen opponents 
have been, but have great team 
speed and offensive power. They 
are led by QB Bill Casey from 
San Diego City College. Casey 
has a bevy of sprinters to utl- 
lize and great receivers includ- 
ing AU-Metro Conference Mark 
Larson from Bakersfleld CoU 

Over 100 players turned out 
tor football Las vegas style. 
A whole bus load came in from 
Bakersfleld and Taft Junior col- 
leges, and such engaging places 
as Newport News, Va.; Tulelake, 
Calif.; Mlddletown and Campbell, 
Ohio; Houston, Texas; Powell, 
Wyo.; and Foreman, Arkansas. 
NSU picked up over two dozen 
of the best of Nevada athletes 
to go along with their imports. 

In one season of spring and 
fall practices NSU has blended 
speed, power, size and enthu- 
siasm into a well-oiled machine. 
One of the very few teams still 
undefeated In the country, 

CLC has also won eight games 
this year, but has a 22-7 loss to 
Redlands University to blemish 
its record. 

That Pomona beat Redlands 
and CLC devoured Pomona 
doesn't alter the record, CLC 
was far superior to Pomona last 
Saturday. The Kingsmen played 
two good quarters and two poor 
quarters in their win. In the first 
quarter CLC rang up a good mix* 
ture of offense and put together 
a goal line stand and some nifty 

Both teams played spotty foot- 
ball (or the middle part of the 

game, and only CLC*s depth gave 
them the big scoring bulge In the 
4th stanza. 

In the process of winning their 
7th In a row, CLC set two na- 
tional records for the National 
Association of Intercollegiate 
Athletics record book. The CLC 
defense bagged four more pass 
interceptions. Disallowing one 
that came on a conversion, 
CLC has 36 for the year. The 
previous record was 34, set in 
1967 by Southwestern of Kansas. 

Only one football team in Am- 
erican college football history 
has more interceptions in a single 
season. Hardin-Simmons collect- 
ed 37 in 1951. CLC wUl attempt 
to break that record Saturday In 
Las Vegas. 

VtUliam "Iiobi)i&" Robir-soi. 
has set his name Into the record 
book with his 10th field goal of 
the year. The previous mark was 
set in 1961, 1963, and again In 
1966. The Junior from Woodland 
HlUs tallied 16 points to run his 
season scoring pace to 87, a 
CLC record. 

The Kingsmen made 468 total 
offense yards to Pomona's 122. 
CLC tried to share the wealth 
in interceptions too, as they toss- 
ed five to the alert Pomona 
secondary In a good-will gesture. 

Gary Loyd, senior All-Ameri- 
can from Torrance, played a 
fine game and punted six punts 
for a 52,3 yard average. One 
was blocked. His adjusted net 
yardage 2,391 yards on 53 punts 
for a 45.1 yard average. This 
Is second best in the nation. 

What's With 
The Women? 

What with November seemingly 
being a rather quiet month for 
AWS, I thought It might be good 
to tell a few of the things that 
CLC coeds have been working on 
these past few weeks. In an ef- 
fort to keep commuting women 
in contact with what is happening 
on campus, the AWS Senate Is In 
the process of having a commuter 
elected to be a member of the 
Senate. It will then be this girl's 
responsibility to relay any neces- 
sary informattonbacktotheother 
commuting students as well as ob- 
tain any of their ideas. 

Because a number of girls have' 
expressed a desire for more ac- 
tivities with AMS, AWS plans to 
attack through sports. Judy 
Hampton, senior representative 
from Beta, is currently working 
on a program of intramural 
sports and it is hoped that a lot 
of you men with energy left over 
from football season will join us

'Tantagleize''- Saddening, Vigorous 

Nevada Southern is a differ- 
ent cat. While the Pomona of- 
fense remained docile through- 
out much of the contest, the Re- 
bels have their best tools on 
offense. It Is doubtful if CLC, 
or any team, can contain the ex- 
plosive speed and diversified of- 
fense of Nevada Southern. 

What shapes up Is a titanic 
struggle between two high scor- 
ing elevens. With CLC ranked 
number 11 In the nation and 
NSU pushing hard for national 
recognition, something has to 
give. This may be the only sure 
fire bet In Las Vegas, Saturday. 
The fans should be sure winners. 

Coach Bob Shoup sums up his 
squads chances by saying, "We 
are very pleased with the oppor- 
tunlty to play with such a fine 
opponent representing the Uni- 
versity of Nevada. It is a chal- 
lenge for our team to step up 
into the University level, I am 
confident we will be ready for 
our best effort of the year." 

It is astonishing that the play 
Pantagleize, written In 1926, can 
convey today, such a strong feel- 
ing of timeliness and vigor. Rus- 
sian spies, police agents dls. 
guised as playlwy bunnies, and 
such a line as ''But Negroes don't 
cause revolutions!" throw the 
play right "under our noses" In 
point of time, so to speak, (The 
line quoted ^ove probably refer- 
red to native Africans; however, 
a short, spontaneous round of ap- 
plause showed its Interpretation 
by the audience in CLC audito- 
rium on opening night.) Michel 
de Ghelderode, the Belgian author 
of the play, described himself as 
a poet using the form of the thea- 
tre; It has been said also that 
he was "an expresslonlstlc and 
experimental dramatist whose 
works express astonishing vigor 
and plastic sense." Pantagleize 
is entertaining, yet full of subtle 
Irony and real tragedy: "A farce 
to make you sad," 

Pantagleize is a clown who has 
made a living, writing for a fash- 
ion magazine; he awakens on the 
morning of May 1 and decides to 
say to all the passers-by the 
phrase "What a lovely dayl" 
Dressed In the costume of the 
great mime Marcel Marceau, 
wearing a swallow-tailed coat and 
carrying an umbrella, he goes out 
now knowing — and Indeed never 
discovering — that this trite 
sentence is the key signal for a 
revolution, and that he uncon- 
sciously becomes Its leader. The 
play Is centered around the 
character of this stupid, Intelli- 
gent, naive and gentle man. "Hie 
speaking part alone In the play 
is formidable; at one time Pan- 
tasdelze Is the only actor who 

speaks on stage for nearly a quar- 
ter of an hour. Phil Randall 
carries the part excellently; he 
approaches brilliance in his com- 
petently handled stage business, 
his well-timed and gracefully exe- 
cuted gestures, and the truly 
clown-like carriage of his body. 
His lines are appropriately ten- 
der, funny, dramatic, phllo» 
Sophie, emotional, self-possess- 
ed, or very moving. 

Rachel Silberschatz, the pas- 
sionate Jewish Russian spy who 
saves Pantaglelze's life by drag- 
ging him from the streets, de- 
clares that she loves him, but 
loves first all humanity — then 
gives him a revolver and tells 
him to get the Imperial Trea. 
sure from the closely guarded 
bank. Is portrayed by Monique 
Mclnnls. She gives the part 
character with her husky voice 
and movements twth sinister and 
abiTjpt. As Bamboola, the unin. 
hiblted, acrobatic, impulsive ser- 
vant of Pantagleize and one of the 
revolutionaries, Mike McPher- 
son does a fine job. The police 
detective Creep, a rather cyni- 
cal character. Is done with style 
by Orln Wise. Gary Odom por- 
trays with appropriate fervor and 
melodrama the posturing, ri- 
diculous, cannon-shy General 
MacBoon. Mark Eichman Is 
protean In his capable handllngof 
three substantial parts, WUUe 
Ware has a dominating presence 
as the powerful, deep-voiced, al- 
beit somewhat pedantic, General- 
issimo. Richard Bontems gives 
a nearly perfect interpretation of 

the Distinguished Council » whose 
duty it is to defend the revolu- 

by Sylvia Ottemoeller 

tlonarles In court. He has an 
easily assumed and easily drop- 
ped "courtroom manner" which 
Is very funny. 

A jury of ghoulish, masked, 
puppet-like figures gives the 
courtroom atmosphere but does 
not dominate it; four well-built 
playboy bunnies flavor the police 
action; soldiers and sentries re- 
present the military aspect of the 
play with maneuvers of precision, 
and though their bawdlness is a bit 
wooden, tlieir occasional unmill- 
tary retorts are partof the play's 

Mr, Richard as director has 
kept the play taut and fast-mov- 
Ing. The getting up of the stage 
between scenes was done effi- 
ciently in darkness. The light- 
ing and the set Itself were both 
versatile and effective. Bobble 
Johnson deserves special re- 
cognition for her excellent job 
of costume design. 

Pantagleize, which played Nov. 
15, 16, and 17, was seen on open- 
ing night by members of a panel 
of judges. TTie play Is In compe- 
tition for a place as one of the 
tern which will represent col- 
leges and university theatres at 
the American Colleges Theatre 
Festival In Washington, D.C. 
Though the judges are not allowed 
to comment critically, one of 
them remarked that they had en- 
joyed It very much.

Much of Ragnar's time is spent 
with ski club activities since he 
Is the president of that club. He 
plans on having a good turnout 
this year. Many of the plans are 
set and many are still in the plan- 
nlng stage.

their engagement at the Sadie Hawkins Dance on ^he traditional candlepassing ceremony announ- 
October 26. ced the engagement of Karen Jensen to Scott

The Ski Club was started In 
1965 by Ron Zurek because there 
were many here who wanted to 
learn to ski along with those who 
already knew how but wanted the 
opportunity to go more often. 
Ragnar feels that that first year 
was the best the club has liad. 

Dr. Braendlin was with the 
club for three years. He did much 
for it In this time his greatest 
accomplishment being Instructor 
of 80 skiers who had never look- 
ed at a ski close-up. The present 
advisor is Dr. Fellows. 

The list of officers is as fol- 
lows: President — Ragnar Storm- 
Larsen; Vice President — Doug 
Hurley; Secretary — Nancy Lov- 
ell (Ragnar likes to keep things 
in the family); Treasurer — Doug 
Zurek; Coordinator — KathyRen- 

The up and coming events are 
scheduled as follows: 

December 14th and 15th — 
Ski at Mammouth (there was a 
new snow fall recently in this 
area so conditions look good for 
a successful trip). 

January 25 — Ventura Coun- 
ty Ski Festival will be held here 
at CLC featuring: a 90 minute 
film "Ski Highlights Around the 
World** (In CLC's famous gymna- 
sium), ski shops with displays of 
equipment, etc., fashion show of 
ski clothes, and a snow queen 

February 14 ■ 17th — (winter 
quarter break) — trip to Doug 
Hurley's cabin in Badger Pass. 

March 19th - 24th — (spring 
quarter break) — still In the 
planning stage but probably out 
of state. 

Ragnar urges all those who 
are interested In skiing or even 
learning to ski to become mem- 
bers. TTie yearly membership fee 
is only $5.00 and entitles you to 
many benefits such as movies, 
ski lessons, discounts to par- 
ties, and refreshments to name 
only a few. If you are interested 
it's not too late. TTie present 
meetings are still organizational 
and you may t}e able to become 
active in a committee.

AWS Is also looking into the 
possibilities of carrying out some 
worthwhile service project this 
year in which as many of the 
girls as possible can get involv- 
ed. AWS has always been known 
fbr sponsoring successful social 
activities, but it is time that 
some money and energy be put 
into other areas. I'm hoping for 
the enthusiastic support of all 
the women for this project. 

The next AWS activity will be 
the Lucia Bride festival and this 
year plans are being made to 
make It more beautiful than ever 
before. Dotty Satrum Is chair, 
man of this event which is to 
take place on TTiursday evening, 
Dec, 5th. Freshman will soon be 
learning more atwut this tradl- 
tional Swedish custom which is 
held annually at CLC. It Is al. 
ways combined with the tree- 
lighting ceremony and this year 
it Is not going to rain — SO 

This is Just an idea of how 
AWS has spent the month of 
November in case you've been 
wondering. AWS wants to serve 
the students in a variety of ways 
and we're always open to sugges- 
tions as to how to do this. We 
even let Dean Hall get a word 
in now and then I

How do you describe a group like the Pentangle? (Reprise 6315) 
A toUc.rock blues-ballad tribal love-raga? Somehow Insufficient. 
Jefferson Alrplan6 unplugged? 
Better, but still Inadequate for a group that covers so much new 

ground musically. ,^ , , 

Rolling Stone Magazine describes the group as "a musical ex- 
perience which has Its own Identity, unlike most *pop music* today. 

The Pentangle Is the best folk group in a decade. 

Composed of Bert Jansch, who has played considerably with 
Donovan (In the band, In the band) John Renboume, England's se- 
cond-best guitarist (next to Jansch) Terry Cox, Danny Thompson 
and a girl singer named Jacqul McShee who makes Judy Collins 
sound like she has throat cancer. 

The vocals and the Instrumentation blend to form a perfect 
harmonic unit. The guitar solos are great jazz off-shoots that 
somehow fit comfortably In the basic folk form. 

In fact, thft only complaint I can find ts that I just cant get enough 


Whoever made the decision to select the Clara Ward Singers 
for Homecoming entertainment has to be credited for one of the 
most engaging, entertaining, exciting evenings of the year. Seldom 
can any In-person act maintain such vigorous momentum and still 
hold the audience so securely In Its grasp. The group more than 
earned the standing ovation It received at the end of the perform- 


and the person who contracted the act deserves more than 

a little applause himself. 


Beards! Beards! 

To the Judges of the Beard- 
Growing Contest 
c/o The Editor 
Mountclef Echo 


Raymond Olsen your choice! 
Reallyl A beard? Nay, not even 
a stubble, a mere discoloration 
of his cheek, that Is all It was, 
at a distance easily confused 
with a failure to wash. 

And to compound your 111 wis- 
dom, standing at the side were 
several magnificent faculty 
beards, groomed, combed, glean, 
ing through long years of culti- 

It Is true of course that Mr, 
Murley was not eligible for con- 
sideration. Firstly, his beard Is 
brash, bushy, untamed. Second- 
ly. Its sole raison de'etre Is to 
conceal a weak chin, and on that 
ground alone he ought to be dis- 

But then, what of Mr. Wolf? 
Why was he not considered? True 
Indeed, he only has a mustache, 
but that mustache had more hair 
than the entire head, Including 
" chin, of your choice, Ray Olsen, 
It simply Is not true, that scur- 
rllous rumour afloat, that Mr, 
Wolf does not have a true mus- 
tasche but has simply let his nose, 
iialrs grow long. He does have a 
mustache, and It Is a good one. 
And what of Mr, Caldwell, pa- 
triarch of the library? Why was 
he not given at least honorable 
mention, for effort? Again, I 
must take to his defense and put 
the lie to those who whisper 
in private that his beard has lice. 
Matted, yes. Lice, no, 

TTxere remains yet one more 
faculty member, magnificent ton- 
sorlally, yet too modest to Iwast 
of his hirsute talents. Why was 
not this prophetic figure con- 

Dear judges, I fear you have 
unfettered a faculty fury which 
shall grow in crescendo and erupt

One frequenUy learns from the experience of reviewing the past. 
(This Is a rewording of the cliche, "Hindsight Is better than fore- 
sight.") This Is by no means to say that the past is wrong, evil, etc, 

or any other terms people apply to actions with which they dls- 

agree. It is merely to say that observation in retrospect Is often help. 
ful in putting things In perspective. 

Several people on various occasions have complained that the 
ECHO contains too much advertising. (One advantage of this is that 
they noticed the advertising.) All humor aside, advertisements in 
the ECHO serve a threefold purpose: a) they serve the students 
by Infbrmlng them of businesses which can aid and which wish to 
help the CLC student; b) they serve the business by drawing to 
them customers, thereby Improving college relaUons with the 
community; c) they serve the students as a whole by enabling the 
ECHO to be published frequenUy and to contain as much material ^ 
as it does (although Its staff Is constantly seeking Improvements), 
Even with the financial allotment from the ASB, the quality of 
the "Mountclef Echo" could not be as high as It is without a cer- 
tain volume of advertising. 

Another area of concern is that of "Letters to the Editor." 
This section of the ECHO affords anyone and everyone wishing to 
express his opinion O^ut not wishing to write an actual article) 
to do so. This section offers the ECHO'S readers a place to see 
what some people think of CLC, Its students, Its policies, and of 
each other. The policy of the ECHO ts to NOT edit the letters ex- 
cept In areas where a matter of taste is very much at stake. For- 
tunately, there has been no need for any such ediUng. (For those 
of you who may have questions on the matter of taste, It should 
be noted that four-letter words are not necessarily in bad taste. 
It depends upon the context in which they are used.) Furthermore, 
the "Letters to the Editor" section of the ECHO Is not to be a 
forum for personal attacks (as well-covered as they may be) upon 
the college, upon the ECHO, or upon any person. Anyone who 
involves himself In making personal attacks, leaves himself open 
to be attacked himself. Unfortunately, subjectivity often enters into 
the discussion here and the general readership may not fully under- 
stand the Issues Involved. 

In response to persons who request that even more information 
be placed In the ECHO, let me say that this Is really a compliment. 
In previous years, due to various reasons, the ECHO was not as 
widely read as It Is now. I can honestly say that it Is gratifying to 
know that a fair number of students appreciate it enou^ to ask 
fbr more. One of our goals this year Is to make the ECHO a real 
student newspaper, containing even more Infbrmation which pertains 
to the college students, (particularly the CLC students) needs, 
hopes. Ideas, and works. 

In any case, ECHO readers should be aware that it Is not always 
possible to publish eight pages. This is due to the lack of Informa- 
tion available, the lack of Important activities, or the lack of de. 
sire to publish several pages of •filler*. 

TTie "Mountclef Echo" will continue to Improve, but It needs 
your help. Constructive criticism Is always welcome.

Confessions of a Christ killer 

Eric Cohen, Daily Trolan Contributing 
Editor, begins the first of a three-part series 
exploring journalism as fiction. The author 
often quotes H. L. Mencken, who said, "Never 
let the facts get in tfie way of a good story." 
Cohen describes "Reflections of a Christ killer" 
as "running the entire gamut of human 

He must own a small cranny somewhere, an 
unwanted vestibule, or an ofrice with a ground 
level view. On a clear day he can see garbage 
cans and passing wingtips. But he is laughing, 
cackling madly. 

He enjoys his work. 

On his days off he spends his time torturing 
wann, furry animals, or turning bugs on their 
backs and pulling off their legs one by one. He 
feeds poison bread crumbs to the pigeons in the 
park, and likes to hammer flat the braille at the 
library for the blind. 

His dream— to make "Marat/Sade" into a 
Broadway musical. He'd call it simply "Hello 

His job— he is the malcontent who matches 
up roommates, who selects the dullard you And 
sitting on the bottom bunk picking the wax 
from his ears when you walk into your dorm 
room for the first time. 

So it was that Max Schulman would be right 
about what would be sleeping beneath me for 
my fust year of college. 

My roommate hailed from an all-boys 
Catholic school in San Bernardino. I was ready 
not to hold this against him. God knows 
celibation is no celebration and if I was guilty 
of any abstinence in high school, I clearly had 
no excuse like a ruler-wielding cleric. 

My roommate was well over six feet tall and 
had the posture of a pretzel. He was constantly 
looking for something to do with his 
extremities, until he ultimately learned that 
hands were for hitting and feet were for 
kickmg. Beating me would have been a great 
release of tension for him. 

But I could bluff. I had developed a great 

Kirk Douglas imitation. When I told him, from 

between bared teeth, to do something, the 

subdued potential for violence seemed evident. 

It was not until the second semester of our 

sojourn together that he realized he could 
probably kill me wrjth his bare hands. 

Our relationship nurtured, grew and 
mellowed from indifference into mutual, open 

He was curious looking. He had one long 
tooth in the middle of his mouth which hung 
out and downward. It was reminiscent of OIlie 
the dragon's tooth of Kukla, Fran and OIlie. 
The tooth looked like a can opener and I 
always felt it was unnecessary to keep a church 
key around the room. 

When he talked he sounded sort of like a 
neurotic Elmer Fudd. His Adams apple danced 
up and down his long neck like a gopher 
scrambling back and forth in its tunnel. 

I conjectured to him that the only reason 
San Bernardino existed was as a place to stop 
for gas on the way to Las Vegas. 

"They don't even have paved streets to roll 
up at night," I suggested. "They have to roll up 
the dirt." 

He never said much. 

"What do you do for big action in San 
Bernardino, drive in to Barstow?" 

He would just groan. Barstow is the place 
they make you walk to bare-footed and with 
two broken thumbs If you get caught cheating 
in Las Vegas. The only thing of note in Barstow 
is an army camp, and Barstow's biggest export 
is spinal meningitis. But I figured he might be a 
camp follower. 

My roommate bathed regularly, every Ash 
Wednesday, like clock work. Apparently, 
deodorant was still a rumor in San Bernardino. 
I often tried tactfully to broach the subject to 

"God, you stink," I would say. 

We would often have long and enthralling 
monosyllabic discussions. 

"Turn off the light," I would ask. 

He would laugh. "Turn off the light, damn 
it," I would suggest. 

He would just smile condescendingly. "Oh, 
you mean SHUT the light. That's the way we 
say it back home." 

He still wouldn't close the light. Whenever I 
wanted to sleep he had to stay up all night and 
study. One night I stayed up with him to 


He was a study in inertia. He would at 
humped over his desk and doodle until about 
three. Then he would turn his chair toward the 
light and cross his legs, bringing one foot up 
close. Out came the nail clipper and he spent 
until daybreak shooting toenail shrapnel at me. 

He evidently did not mind the stench, which 
hung in the room like the fabled London killer 
fog. He insisted on closed windows. Fresh air 
and water were to him alien. He had probably 
seen what happened to the wicked witch of the 
north in the Wizard of Oz too many times. 

Pretty soon everything he did annoyed me. 
The Odd Couple revisited. If I were lying on the 
top bunk and I could hear him sitting below me 
clipping his toenails, it would drive me up the 
plastered walls. I have still never understood 
why keeping his toenails short was the only 
/estige of good grooming he maintained, nor 
why roommates toenails aeem to grow faster 
and need clipping more often than anyone 

Listening to him chomp on an apple, and 
imagining that long fang leading the way caused 
beads of blood to pop from my brow. 

Finally we asked the Head Resident of our 
dorm for a trial separation. I didn't only want 
separate honeymoons and separate bedrooms, I 
wanted separate marriages. 

We couldn't get a quickie divorce. Alt the 
other rooms in the dorm were full and the rest 
of the people seemed ecstatically happy witTi 
one another.

'The 'J' Is For Jesus' 


By Bill Bowers 

Over the vacation, Beasley Trueheart, boy reviewer made a 
lot of money by Inventing a brand new toy. It comes In the box 
already broken, Beasley claims It's for very lazy kids. 

Reel George 

"The Killing of Sister George" was produced by the same man 
who produced the "Dirty Dozen." This time he seems to be nine 

The story concerns the rather delicate relationship between 
three lesbians — sort of an Infernal triangle. Sister George of the 
title (superbly played by Beryl Reid) Is the happy-go-lucky nun on 
the video«serles "Applehurst." Onstage she's as sweet as Christ* 
mas candy. Offstage, she's a cigar-chompIng, back-slapping shrew 
who co-habits with a likeable lass named Chlldle McNaught. (Su> 
sannah York). 

George's part on the TV series has been rapidly dropping In 
popularity, and George feels that the axe Is about to fall. The axe. 
In this case, Is the battleaxe head of network publicity (Coral 
Browne) who not only takes the part from George but takes Chlldle 
as well. 

One thing you have to say about the movie, it is not suggestive; 
It Is blatant. Some of the shocking scenes toward the end of the 
picture mak e The Fox look housebroken. The scenes are so ex- 
pliclt tRey" make you wish you were somewhere else. (Some- 
where our Administration would NOT aoorove oO. 

But aside from that, everything about the film is first-rate. 
Acting deserves Oscars all around. 

The adaptation of the stage play, though heavy-handed In spots, 
was generally delicate and touching. 

At the box office, "George" is sure to make a killing. 

Wes Montgomery 

When Wes Montgomery dledon 
June 15, 1968, three of his al- 
bums were on "Billboard's" list- 
Ing of the top twenty Jazz al- 
bums. His A & M record "A 
Day In the Life" was No. I, 
while "Down Here on the 
Ground" was No. 2. "The Best 
of Wes Montgomery," on Verve, 
was No. 5 on that list, and a 
reissue of Wes' old "In the Wee 
Small Hours" on Riverside was 
just making it up the charts. 

Now almost six months after 
his death, A & M Records Is 
releasing the last work of the 
artist whom noted jazz critic 
Ralph Gleason termed ". . , 

the best thing to happen to the 
■ guitar since Charlie Christian." 
The name of the album Is slm- 
ply "Road Song," and was pro- 
duced by Creed Taylor who first 
produced Wes on the Verve label. 

The album Is clearly Wes Mont- 
gomery's best work In every de. 

Wes once said that the secret 
of recording a tune that Is only 
two minutes and forty-five sec- 
onds long is to "get Into It, 
identify yourself, put some guts 
into it, and get out. . ." 

Wes Montgomery has gotten 
out, but the beat goes on, , . .

Ph. D 


gressman Donald M. Fraser of 
Minnesota has proposed legisla- 
tion that would help universities 
finance the training of Ph.D can- 

The Graduate Education Act 
of 1969 "^ould distribute $300 
million a year among 40 schools 
according to the number of doc- 
torates they have awarded during 
the past three years. 

Drafted with the help of five 
University of Minnesota profes. 
sors, the bill is designed to sup- 
plement present federal pro- 
grams which provide training 
and research grants to univer- 

The money a school received 
would go toward meeting the 
minimum costs which all gra- 
duate schools face in running 
Ph.D programs. All properly ac- 
credited courses of study except 
those in sectarian theology would 
be funded. 

Congressman Fraser feels 
there is a need to increase sup- 
port to arts and humanities pro- 
grams as well as those in the 
natural and social sciences, 
where most money so far has 
been spent. 

The bUI H.R. 20189, has 
been referred to the House educa- 
tion and labor committee, It will 
have to be re-introduccc^ in the 
next session of Congress,

SDS Turns Athletic 

ATLANTA (CPS)— Freedom of 
the rights of campus journalists 
were defended last week In a dis- 
cussion of the student press at the 
annual Conference ofSIgmaDelta 
Chi, national journalism fra- 

College students '^ r e con- 
fronted with the paradox of seek- 
ing effective answers to enor- 
mous new questions v/tiile being 
expected to conduct themselves 
within the mores and social con- 
cepts of traditional society, "said 
Bill Preston, SDS President at 
the University of Tennessee. 

The public should be educated 
that the changing times have lift- 
ed taboos on certain words, Doug 
Stone , managing editor of the 
University of Minnesota Dally, 
said. "When these words be- 
come essential as quotes In news 
stories, they should be used. 
Anything else would be Incom- 
plete reporting." 

What a paper prints, he added, 
should t>e determined by con- 
temporary standards of students, 
not of secondary audiences, 
politicians, or local crusaders. 
When a paper stirs contro- 
versy over use of such words, 
or for other reasons, due pro- 
cess should be followed by the 
publications board after the 
storm has died. Stone argued. 
"We have seen all too frequent, 
ly this fall the hostility and tur- 
moil caused by Intemperate and 
unilateral action by a college 
president, board of regents, or 
state legislature with an axe to 

■niere should be "no meddling" 
In the student press by outside 
torces. Stone said. "The first 
most Important thing an admin- 
istrator owes college editors Is 
to leave us alone." He also 
said student papers ought not 
to be "PR sheets" nor spokes- 
men for the university, and that 
access to administrators and that 
faculty should beeaslerandmore 

John Durbln, a senior at South- 
em Illinois University, suggested 
that student papers cover news 
of the surrounding city, es- 
pecially those municipal aifaJrs 
that affect students. Such cov- 
erage would also provide learn- 
ing journalists good experience 
and could Influence city affairs, 
he added. 

Student protesters confront 
editors with a serious problem 
In news judgment, according to 
Frank Mlouff, SDX President at 
the University of Colorado. Edl. 
tors should weigh the significance 
and seriousness of the demon- 
strators carefully before de- 
voting a lot of space to them, 
he said. 

MalouS also noted the dan- 
gers for student papers that get 
involved In the protest move- 
ment themselves. He said many 
papers favor the broad Ideals 
but not the tacticsof "hardcore" 
protesters. "The student press 
is filled with people with a social 
conscience. The greatest dan- 
ger to the student pres Is not 
that It will choose the anti-es- 
tablishment side, but that the 
administration will Insist It 
choose Its side." 

The panel was moderated by 
H. G. Davis of the University 
of Florida, who noted the "rather 
startling, even revolutionary de- 
velopments" In the student press 
over the past few years. He 
listed a new concern with major 
social problems, a plunge Into 
personal journalism, stress on 
"I," deemphasls on eye," a 
fresh vltallzatlon of the editor- 
ial pages and proliferation of 
**autonomous, Independent, Ir- 
reverent, muckraking, desti- 
tute" underground newspapers. 
"The student press," Davis 
said, 'Is no longer a mere sand- 
box for student Journalists. It's 
being used to shape minds, per. 
haps with more Impact ttian the

Editor Resigns Over Olympic Opinion 

HAYWARD, Calif, (CPS)— Stu- 
dent objections to an editorial 
criticizing the Olympic protest 
of sprinters Tommie Smith and 
John Carlos have caused the ed. 
Itor of the campus newspaper 
at California State College here 
to resign. 

Editor Karen Holzmelster said 
she resigned **to keep peace 
among black and white students 
so that the learning process at 
Cal State will not be hindered." 

TTie editorial conceded that 
Smith and Carlos have a right 
to express their views but said 
they picked the wrong time and 
place. The two sprinters lowered 
their heads and held up black- 
gloved hands on the Olympic vie 
tory stand after they finished 
first and third In the 200 meters, 

Atout 100 students, most of 
them black, burned copies of the 
paper, the Pioneer, after the 
editorial aRjeared, then marched 
to the editor's office, where they 
demanded she resign. 

They said their grievances In- 
volved Miss Holzmelster's gen- 
eral editorial policies, as well 
as the specific editorial, Tliey 
gave her an hour to respond to 
their demand. After they refused 
an offer to write a guest editorial, 
Miss Holzmelster resigned. 

Richard Tarqulnlo, the paper's 

adviser, said "There were no 
threats but it was a forceful 
demand," He said he thou^t the 
editorial page would "be more 
of an open forum" after the 

But Miss Holzmelster dis- 
agreed. She said the editorial 
page already provided a forum 
and that she printed all the let- 
ters she received. She also claim- 
ed that she was threatened and 
wanted It clear she was resigning 
under duress. "They called me 
a racist and a fascist," she 
said. "They said there would be

Archaeological Dig 

Yields Chutnash Indian Remnants 

A 1965 Investigation conducted 
by the department of anthropology 
of the University of California 
at Los Angeles at nearby site 
VEN 69 indicated that Chumash 
tribes of the Conejo were main. 
ly inland dwellers, dating from 
1000 A.D. to as late as 1300 
A.D. Their conclusions, based 
on specific occurrences of glass 
and olivella beads, and discovery 
oX desert slde>iiotched projectile 
points, concur with the chronolo- 
glcal sequence established for 
Chumash sites by other studies. 

The CLC group's finding show 
the surprising occurrence of con- 
cave based desert projectile 
points and the absence of side 
notched points, possible crude 
fish hooks, many types of shells 
and clam shell ornaments, and 
pestles; their finding indicate 
a seasonal coastal camp of Chu- 
mash, probably dating around 
1400.1600 A.D. 

In addition, the dig, conducted 
at site VEN 37, yielded stone, 
flint and bone Implements; pro< 
jectUe points, scrapers, chop- 
pers, and pestles. Many of these 
artifacts are presently on dis- 
play In the College Union Build, 
ing at the college. 

Interested persons are invited 
to learn field archaeological me- 
thods and to join In efforts to 
unearth new artifacts by con- 
tacting Dr. Maxwell at Califor- 
nia Lutheran College. Residents 
of the area should not visit the 
dig site unaccompanied, howewr, 
since the novice may Inadvertent- 
ly destroy artifacts which he does 
not recognize, said Dr. Maxwell. 

As a result of field archaeo- 
logical study conducted this past 
summer, students at California 
Lutheran College have unearthed 
new artifacts and historical data 
relating to the Chumash Indian 
culture of Western California, 

according to Dr. Thomas J.Max- 
well, professor in sociology and 
anthropology at the Thousand 
Oaks campus. 

The continuing search by the 
CLC student for clues in the re- 
construction of early Indian life 
in the Conejo Valley led to the 
discovery of over 700 artifacts 
In the Conejo Rock Shelter area 
near the campus. Interpretation 
of the data leads to some Inter- 
esting new conclusions about the 
inhabitants of the site, Dr. Max. 
well said.

at CLC with the Lucia Bride

spirit and should have been con- 
gratulated for trying to enliven 
what has often been termed, par- 
ticularly by non-returning stu»

Greetings From 

Dear. Dr. Olson: 

First of all, I would like to 
extend my greetings to you, your 
family, Uie faculty, and student 

Alganesh and myself enjoyed 
our stay at California Lutheran 
College. We would like to thank 
you, the bculty, and the student 
body for making our stay very 
enjoyable. You really made us 
love your people and country. 

We arrived In Ethiopia on Au» 
gust 31. We had a wonderful 
trip in America and Europe. We 
were provided with finances from 
First Lutheran Church In Fuller- 
ton to take a month's trip In 
America and Europe. We had a 
chance to visit with missionaries 
whom we knew In Ethiopia. 

I am now serving as president 
of the Wollo-Tlgre Synod, Ethi- 
opian Evangelical ChurchMekane 
Yesus (X^utheran Synod In Ethio- 
pia). Nada Lundrlng from Cali- 
fornia Is my secretary, and she 
says to tell you hello. 

You told me once you were 
planning to come to Ethiopia. If 
you are coming for sure, please 
Inform me the date that you will 
stay In Ethiopia. You are cor- 
dially invited to be our guest dur- 
ing your stay here. Maybe you 
would have time to visit some 
of the Ethiopian Evangelical 
Church stations, such as medical 
work, educational work, commun- 
ity development work, and evan- 
gelistic work. 

Please convey our greetings 
to the college population. We 
pray that God may continue to 
bless the college. 


A Day in tlie Life of the Gols 

Unless you tried very, very hard, it wasn't easy to avoid reading 
the letter written by Doug Rommerheim and John Guth to the women 
of CLC. The way In which the letter was written was clever, and 
It Is true that there are not enough students who will honestly ex- 
press their opinions. But this is as far as my respect for what Doug 
and John wrote can go. An article that could get into the hands of 
every student, professor, and member of the administration cer- 
tainly warrants more than "thoughts off the tops of our head(s)," 
as the letter says. Perhaps if greater thought had gone into the let- 
ter, the writers would have realized some of the erroneous state- 
ments that they were making. For instance, women may now wear 
casual clothes everywhere during the week except to classes, and. 
to my knowledge, there has never been a request that women dress' 
differently when convocators and regents are on campus. 

It seems that Doug and John are convinced that the women of 
Cal Lutheran lead a cloistered existence and are being treated as 
children. In trying to make their point, they downgrade everything 
from devotions to counselors to a speech on love given by Dean 
Hall, when really the very purpose of such programs is to help 
women students expand their views and by talking and listening to 
other students, grow into more mature, thinking human beings. I 
resent the fact that the writers of this letter belltUed devotions, 
for Instance, when they reaUy know nothing about the conversa- 
tions that take place during devotions. How cto they know that the 
world is discussed as being **beautIfulflowerdaIsied?" It has 
also been my experience that during devotions, the racial situa- 
tion was not discussed "cause Its cool" or because It's the thing 
to do today. Surely, Doug and John, you can give the women credit 
for being a little more sensible than that. 

The letter really said notlilng new regarding hours or where 
women should smoke on campus, TTiese are questions that have 
always been re-evaluated, and If any CLC coed Is unhappy with 
the present policies, she knows she can bring her request before 
the AWS Senate which Is composed of women who themselves must 
fbllow the present policies. It Is going a little far, however, to 
put closing hours for a women's residence hall next to preg- 
nancies or planned parenthood. It Is true that a reason for closing*^ 
hours is for the protection of women students, and It is under- 
standable that the school feels a responsibility for this. But, a cur. 
few on hours Is not going to protect the morals of any woman at 
CLC, and I cannot believe that the men students view themselves 
as "protectors of the protected." The matter of hours brings 
up the point that It Is not Dean Hall who tells the women when a 
situation Is serious enough that something should be done about 
It, but it Is the women themselves who will take action when they 
feel it Is needed. Dean Hall's advice Is very hl^y regarded and 
has an influence on any decisions made, but, double standard or 
not, the women themselves wUI decide when a change in stand- 
ards Is necessary. 

I believe that I have the support of the women students In writing 
this, and I have not written a reply Just because 1 am President 
of the women students and feel It Is my responsibility to be angry. 
I have written this article because I feel genuinely offended that 
some of the activities I believe are worthwhile and a person I 
admire have been Insulted by two people who really don't know 
the feelings of the women students, A day In the life of the gals 
is the "grit" told to Doug and John by perhaps a few people, but 
I wish they could hear about a day in the life of the gals as most 
CLC women see It.

you want about the

got. And you could be right. You can say anything you 
want about the Peace Corps. That it's just do-gooders. 
That it doesn't help peace. That it hasn't made any dif- 
ference. The Peace Corps isn't disagreeing. That's not 
what it's about. The Peace Corps doesn't shout, "Come 
makepeace. " Peace doesn't come that easily. It's more of a 
separate peace. Maybe yours. No banners. No bands. No 
medals. The Peace Corps might be for you if you could 
enjoy feeding children. Or repairing a tractor. Or teach- 
ing birth control. Or building a schoolhouse Even if no 
one ends up using it. {Don't think it hasn't happened.) 
The Peace Corps has no delusions of grandeur. Ask any- 
one who's been in it. But there are enough people who 
come out of the Peace Corps with things they've learned 
they can't forget. Good things. There are more ways than 
you can find to help the world. The Peace Corps is just 
one way. It's for someone who would rather do something. 
Anything. Instead of nothing. It could be your way.

CEEB Resists Change 

Anderson In Korea 

Chronicle of Higher Education 

NEW YORK (CPS)— The Col- 
lege EntranceExamlnatlonBoard 
appears ready to concede that 
Us admissions testing program 
is geared primarily to serving 
Institutions of higher education 
and that, as a result, an im- 
balance exists between this ser- 
vice and the Individual needs of 
students who want to continue 
their education beyond high 

But the board does not seem 
prepared to make any radical 
departures In its basic program 
of aptitude and achievement tests, 
without which few students can 
be admitted to colleges and uni- 

Its emphasis more likely will 
be on offering additional ser> 
vices to help students make more 
enlightened judgments about 
themselves and the educational 
Institutions they might attend. 

That was the impression left 
at the Iward's annual meeting by 
its president, Richard Pearson, 
and by the chairman of its com- 
mission on tests. The 21.mem- 
ber commission College Board's 
testing program. It was charged 
with gathering "evidence of the 
need for change" and deciding 
what new examinations might be 
needed in the future. 

So far the commission has 
been unable to reconcile widely 
divergent views among its mem- 
bers. But Mr. Pearson, In his 
annual report to the College 
Board, said his own understand- 
ing of the commission's Inten- 
tion was that "It looks for new 
tests and Inventories that would 
give studentsabetterunderstand- 
Ing of themselves than the 
Board's traditional tests do, and 
also for better informational pub- 
lications and computer-assisted 
guidance to give students a better 
basis for choice and decision" 
about colleges. 

Seeing this as a "long-term 
effort of program development," 
Mr. Pearson went on to voice 
his "assumption at the present 
time. . -that much, though per- 
haps not all, of this developmen- 
tal work win go on outside the 
admlnlssions testing program." 

But some members of the tests 
commission, at least, have been 
greatly impressed by demands 
for fundamental realignments 
within the testing program itself, 
and It is on this point perhaps 
more than any other that the 
commission Is stalemated. 

David V. TIedman, chairman of 
the commission, believes It will 
ultimately call for some "evo- 
lutlonary" changes In board acti- 
vities rather than "revolution- 
ary" approaches to testing. 

Neither he nor the commis- 
sion's vice-chairman, B. Alden 
Thresher, were able to say In 
a 'progress report," however, 
that the commission had resolv- 
ed Us differences over such ba- 

sic questions as whether the 
Iward should continue the test- 
ing program more or less as It 

Mr. Thresher said there was 
a "wide diversity" of opinion 
on the commission, rangingfrom 
"bland contentment at one end to 
fulminating discontent at the 

He said the group had shown 
a willingness "to contemplate 
and seriously consider a variety 
of Innovative and experimental 
proposals which go far beyond 
the Imard's present, convention- 
al programs." Some of these 
Ideas or so "radical," Mr. 
Thresher added, that they could 
be Introduced only gradually. 

But an Indication of how a 
radical approach might be re- 
sisted came from another com- 
mission member, John B. Car- 
roll, who commented In an in- 
terview that "We're probably go- 
ing to keep quite a lot of the 
current procedures." 

Describing himself as "gen- 
erally conservative," Mr. Car. 
roll said that although he could 
go along with the Idea that stu. 
dents need to be given more In- 
formation about colleges, he 
would not favor "precipitous" 
changes in the board's establish- 
ed testing program without care- 
ful research. 

At another point he said: *1»ve 
generally found that, at least 
within a certain area of dis- 
course, the SAT (Scholastic Ap- 
tltude Test) Is as good a pre. 
dlctor of college success as we 
can get." 

Yet Mr. TIedman and Mr. 
Thresher seemed to take Issue 
with the notion that a predictor 
of academic success Is neces- 
sarily relevant. 

Said Mr. Thresher: "Discrim- 
inatory comparisons In scholas- 
tic aptitude tests may In part 
bring about a self-fulfilling pro- 
phecy. Those students who do well 
in the aptitude tests also do well 
In the curriculum which Is geared 
to the tests." 

But he said it Is "common 
knowledge that college grades 
have little relation to later so- 
cial effectiveness In non- 
academic occupations." 

"If the curriculum itself Is 
somewhat irrelevant and there- 
fore provides a criterion of ques- 
tionable value for test validation, 
screening and selecting, the re- 
sulting meritocracy becomes dU 
verted from rational human pur- 
pose," he said. 

Mr. TIedman urged recogni- 
tion of the view that "the Unk- 
ing of aptitude test scores with 
collegiate grading his made ap. 
titude tests a feedback mechan- 
ism instead of a feed-forward 
mechanism." The tests show 
what has existed but not what 
could exist, he said.

With a Utile pulllng-ln of the 
stomach and standlngupstralght- 
er, chances are the outfits will 
look Just as good then as thev 
do now . . , even though they are 
inexpensive disposable "paper" 
caps and gowns from Scott Paper 

The '*throw-away" caps and 
gowns that nobody throws away 
are fast replacing conventional 
cloth cap and gown rentals at 
many of the country's univer- 
sities, colleges and high 
schools, according to Scott 

And, the souvenir aspect of 
the disposable caps and gowns 
is only one reason for their grow- 
Ing popularity, according to Tho- 
mas W. Klein, Scott vice presi- 
dent and president of the com- 
pany's Disposable Textiles, Inc. 

The cap and gown the student 
keeps costs no more than the 
average $5 rental fee for a re- 
turnable cloth outfit, Klein claim. 
ed, and there is no need for a 
deposit fee. 

Another time-consuming and 
frustrating chore — to both the 
graduates and the school ad- 
ministrators — which is also eli- 
minated Klein says, is theneces. 
slty of checking In and checking 
out the rental outfits. 

When the graduate gets his 

diploma, he Is finished; hedoesnt 
have to worry about standing in 
line for 30 or 40 minutes to turn 
In his rental outfit In order to 
get back his $15 deposit. 

And, of course, school offi- 
cials are relieved of the extra- 
curricular duty of processing, 
handling and storing a few hun- 
dred caps and gowns. 

More than 2400 University of 
Cincinnati graduates wore dis- 
posable caps and gowns at their 
June graduation ceremonies, and 
the University of Massachusetts 
also used disposable outfits, 
along with other colleges and 
high schools, Klein said. 

The Scott caps and gowns, 
marketed through its DTI sub. 
sldlary, are available in white, 
black, blue and red. They match 
up In looks with the regular 
outfits because of the tailoring; 
shirred sleeves, cloth bindings, 
and pleated front and l>ack. The 
mortar-boards are complete with 
a white nylon tassel. 

Manufactured of 100 per cent 
rayon, they are said to be lint 
and static - free, as well as fire- 
retardant. Through use of spe- 
cial measurement cards, the 
gowns can be almost custom* 

Other disposables in the Scott 
line Include blazers, gowns, 
smocks, surgical scrub shirts, 
cover .alls, etc.

Love Song of a 

Woman Maddened by War

translated by Tran Van Dlnh 

I have a lover 

Who died at the battle of PlelMei 

I have a lover 

At the Zone *D' 

Who died at the battle of Dong Xoal 

Who died up there In Hanoi 

He died In a hurry 

His heart still lingering at the frontier. 

I have a lover 

Who died at the battle of Chu Phron 

I have a lover 

Whose body drifted along the river 

Who died in the dark covered jungles 

Who died In the cold, 

His body burned as charcoal. 

I want to love you 

I love Viet Nam 

On a stormy day I go 

My lips utter 

Your name 

Your Vietnam Name 

United we are In the language of the yellow-sklnned people. 

I want to love you 

I love Viet Nam 

As soon as I grow up 

My ears are accustomed to the sounds of bullets and mines 

My two hands are now free 

My two Ups are now free 

But I forget from now on the human language, 

I have a lover 

Who died at the batUe of A Shau 

I have a lover who lay dead all bent and crooked 

At the edge of the pass 

Near-dead under the bridge 

Dead: choked 

Without a piece of cloth on. 

I have a lover 

Who died at the battle of Ba Hla 

I have a lover 

Who died only last night 

Who died without time for a last word 

WUhout hatred 

Lying dead as If he was dreaming.

We are in for more than a treat, more than simply Inspiration, 
when we hear Nelson Trout. We are all yearning to know what 
slogans like, "Black Is beautiful" and "Don't look at me as a 
negro but simply as a man** really mean. Nelson will do more than 
talk about gut-level encounter with racism; he'll make us feel it. 

Result: we may learn to cry a little, laugh a little, think a little, 
grow a little. And that's what we all need.

myself, how could I be expected to live 
with someone else. 

But that wasn't all of it. And that 
didn't explain why he hated me. The 
answer came to me, as if In a dream. It 
was a revelation. 

This guy held me personally 
responsible for killing his boy on the 
cross 2.000 years ago. The answer was 
awesome in its simplicity. 

I remembered when I was a little kid, 
about 8 years old, and was first accused 
of t>eing a Christ kilter. 

I was new on the block. I went out to 
play and frolic as young children are 
wont to do. 

The word bad gotten around the 
neighborhood about us. I walked into an 
adjoining backyard as a little girl rode on 
her swing. She held on to the chain with 
one hand and held an ice cream cone with 
the other. She took licks of the ice cream

"Hello, can I play with you." I was 
charming and smooth even then. 
"No. You can't sUy here." 
"Uh. Why not?" 

She pointed a little finger at me with a 
little chewed fingernail at the end of it. 
"You killed Jesus." It was Shirley Temple 
in combat boots. 

I looked back stunned. "Jesus who?'" I 
didn't even know the kid. And I'd iii^l 
moved on the block. How was I eoiiri tn

my little red wagon? 

I went home crying. Mother was no 
solace. It was clear I wasn't going to beat 
this rap. Even if the Pope let me off the 

I might as well enjoy myself. 

I just waited and plotted until next 
Christmas. When I saw her late in 
December I gloated: "Sucker. Christmas 
is only one day, and we get. to haul in 
loot for eight days. Chanukab's got 
Christmas beat a mile. 

"You killed Jesus." That's all she ever 
said to me. 

Christmas eve was finally upon us. All 
the houses on the block were decorated 
elaborately with Christmas lights. Each 
street in our neightiorhood had a theme. 
Ours was the nativity. I had spirited away 
a box full of blue Chanukah bulbs, the 
euphemism my parents insisted on using 
for Jewish Christmas lights. 

When darkness fell I dragged out the 
ladder and the lights and began to work 
feverishly. It would have to be done 
before midnight. 

Finally the lights were arranged into a 
blinking testament to my indomitable 
will. The front of the house shouted in 
blue lights: "WE KILLED JESUS." I had 
to have it done before midnight so Santa 
Claus could see it when he brought my 
Chamik?h presents.

Let There Be Heroes! 

Throughout man's history It has been a common practice to 
admire and adore heroes. Nearly every tribe and civilization has 
had a personage or personages from whom Inspiration was drawn 
and by whom virtue was measured. Whether those personages were 
mythical gods, real life characters, or somewhere in between, their 
epics are In the history and literature books for all of us to read. 

But today one wonders whether that Is all passed and gone. 
For this, friend, Is becoming an age tor (he anti-hero. Some people 
wonder, understandably, whether or not man Is still efficacious, or 
at least to some degree capable of keeping his cool. This Is a time 
of the moral cop«out who tells us not to judge ajid not to condemn 
that which is evil. There is no black and white, we are told, just 
gray. To seek the truth Is glorious, but to find It classifies you as 
some kind of a nut. No values are absolute — least of all your own. 
Be wlshy-washlly openmlnded, and tolerate anything. 

To be sure, principled dedication — together with much hollow 
idealism — manifest themselves In our nation nowadays. But even 
so, they often display a weird attraction to the lowest, rather than 
the highest In man; a love for flaws rather than virtues. We are told 
that it is virtuous to become chronic busybodles, motivated by guilt 
feelings, working madly for everything in general and nothing In 
particular. Today's hero, so we are beginning to hear, is the sneer- 
Ing overgrown Juvenile delinquent who can think only In terms of re- 
volution, revolution, and more revolution. 

In an atmosphere of moral uncertainty, It Is no wonder that we 
often haggle about details and pay little attention to basic principles 
and values, and the reasons behind them. And without thoughtful 
and courageous commitment to the virtuous and the valuable, there 
can be no real admiration for heroes. For just as one's rational 
commitment to a value shows that one believes there is at least 
some good In reality, so one's admiration of heroes shows that one 
believes man Is capable of determining what Is virtuous, carrying 
It out, and having a purposeful life. 

We need not turn our heroes into deities. For they are human — 
and that, often, is the glory of It all. 

Nor do we need agree fully with every potential hro who happens 
along. We do need, however, to be able to recognize a person who 
has rationally analyzed the realities at hand, and courageously seeks 
to promote the values derived therefrom. 

When such persons of rational moral certainty — with reality as 
their base, man's mind as their instrument, and man's life as their 
standard — can come forward and be honored In our society, then 
perhaps America can succeed in rediscovering its own principles 
and purpose. America Is a hero thrown headlong onto the twentieth 
century scene. And If America is a home for the efficacious man, 
then once again America can become a hero.

The cool and articulate Con- 
vocatlorj address of Dr. Paul 
Saltman on January 13 raised 
again a question which Is an ln> 
tegral part of modern life on 
Earth today. Will Science save 
or destroy us? 

Dr. Salt man's glowing and 
somewhat leery descriptions of 
genetic manipulation left many 
I)eople feeling quite hesitant to put 
their faith In a test tube, much 
less a campus doctor. Others, 
like myself, were awe-struck at 
the prospect of complete know. 
ledge of heredity. 

The general conclusions gained 
from Dr. Saltman's address are 
twofold. First, Science tias In- 
come the most potent weapon In 
Man's arsenal for ctiange and 
discovery. Second, as everybody 
already knows, Science has the 
ability to destroy the world ir- 
revocably in seconds. 

It seems that the only practi- 
cal solution lies In properly con. 
trolled use of new scientific know- 
ledge — preferably a political 
control. As long as we have the 
Military and the power struggle 
between nations and people, the 
exploitation of the results of 
Science must be controlled. Time 
and time again Homo sapiens has 
proved his inability to use know, 
ledge constructively. 

Since the goal of Science Is to 
learn all the facts about all the 
Universe at all times, we must 
ask ourselves another question 
upon which hinges the entire fu. 
ture of .A,cademla Itself (her- 
self?). Can Evil be a by-pruduct 
of Knowledge? It appears so, at 
least In a perverted sense. 

Hats off to the administration 
for providing a thought-provoking 
Convocation for a change.

Black Films 


On Tuesday, January 8, two 
new "black films" were shown 
in the CLC auditorium. Run in 
connection with the CLC film 
series, they were well attend, 
ed, John Evans and Doug De- 
Casta, filmmakers of note who 
had brought the films were pre- 
sent also. 

The first film, Johnny Gigs 
Out, portrays the struggles of 
a young Negro attempting to 
survive in a ghetto environment 
as he learns to play the trumpet. 
Filmed In Watts by the MafUndi 
Institute film class, the product. 
Ion Is perhaps not totally effect, 
ive to a non-Involved white per- 
son because of technical defi- 
ciencies. Even so, It is impres. 
sive; it Invokes compassion and 
anger, especially in considera. 
tion of some facts surrounding the 
production of the picture. A nine- 
teen -yea r.old, Johnny Sherman, 
wrote the script forthis,hIs first 
film. Both he and the young man 
who played the main role, Paris 
Earl, are now walking the streets 
of Watts in much the same way 
as the "johnny" of the story. 
The second film, WhatYouPeo. 

by Sylvia Ottomoeller 

pie Want, was filmed, edited, and 
produced and financed by John 
Evans, In this documentary pic 
ture about the Huey Newton inci- 
dent of last summer; scenes of 
community and Black Panther 
action at Alameda County Court 
House and excerpts from 
speeches of Panther leaders are 
alternated with parts of an ex- 
tended Interview with Newton 
himself in jail, in which he e.x. 
plains some of the Black Panther 
philosophy and gives insight into 
the racial situation. Brilliantly 
edited, the film was Informative 
and effective. 

After the films John Evans 
answered questions and explain, 
ed his position as an objective 
filmmaker eager to see the 
reaction of a college audience to 
the films. This was the firstpul). 
lie showing of his film because 
Evans has not been able to find 
an outlet. He hopes that it may 
be possible to make ajid distri- 
bute such tllms regularly to cam- 
puses throughout the country. 

The films were Indeed well, 
received; they produced much 
discussion among the students.

Lutherans Alert 

The Heart of the Matter 

Just recently I counseled with a senior student from one of our 
church colleges who told me that she had lost her faith, I asked 
her how this had happened and she replied with deep emotion: "It 
gradually eroded through my religion courses. I was told, especially 
by one professor, that the Bible was full of myths and errors and 
could not be totally relied upon as factual or true." 

One clear fact emerges not only from this one Incident but also 
from many others that we In Lutherans Alert — National have en- 
countered; namely, that we cannot maintain Christian colleges and 
seminaries while allowing liberal, avant-garde professors to teach 
our students religion. In other words, our religion departments 
are responsible for much of what is happening in our church col- 
leges today. They are responsible In the vast majority of cases 
tor students leaving their chlld-llke faith. Indeed, they hold the key 
to the church's faith. 

We recognize that all church schools have their problems, es- 
pecially In matters of discipline and general administration. In fact, 
our hearts go out to all college presidents in this day of social 
revolution. But we must face factsi Many of our fine young people 
are losing their faith in the classrooms of religion professors. What 
ought to be the strongest department In our church schools has be- 
come the weakest. That department which once held fast to Biblical 
truths has now given way to one which makes unblbUcal assumptions. 
That department which once gave stability to faith has reduced Itself 
to the plagues of skepticism and doubt. Why do our church colleges 
exist If not for strengthening faith and enhancing spiritual growth? 
We used to say, "Education with a plus;" but the plus has now be- 
come a minus. 

As long as religion departments are allowed to be run by the pro- 
ponents of liberal theology we can expect more and more cases like 
that cited above. By the same token, unless our seminaries are staff- 
ed by evangelically oriented professors who believe In the Inerrent 
Word of God we can expect more and more preachers entering put- 
pits without a living faith. We must face up to this problem as con- 
cerned, evangelical , BIble-bellevIng Christians , or be prepared to reap 
the harvest of total apostasy. We cannot afford the luxury of Ignoring 
any longer the heart of the problem at our church schools, namely, 
the religion department. Whatever else Is wrong with Christian 
Education today cannot be dealt with unless we first call a halt to 
the undermining of the Bible that Is taking place in our schools and

Music- A Note 

Byzantium Fallen 

Probably the most influential form of American music has been 
the blues.. Us basic traditional form has expanded into almost every 
form of pop music, today: Jazz, folk, rock, country-western, et, al. 
In all of these areas, the musicians have Inherited and borrowed the 
blues form and carried it on In a fblk-process. One of the best 
examples of this Is In the rock area: rhythm and blues developed 
as an electrified form of the old country blues as a result of the 
black man's move to the big city from the rural South; the move- 
ment to the big city Introduced electrification and a stronger beat 

In correlation with the changes of environment from country to city 
Today's rock musicians are heavily Influenced by the rhythm and 
blues of the late Forties and Fifties, while black musicians have 
extended their own forms Into Motown and Soul. 

Right now, though, 1 shall concern myself with what the wnite 
man has done musically with the blues. There seems to be almost 
an overabundance of white blues bands, and most of them, unfor- 
tunately, sound overabundantly the same. But one of the first move, 
ments of white muslcans to conscientiously work In the blues medium 
took place during the "folk-boom" of 1964 or thereabouts, and pro- 
duced Bob Dylan, John Sebastian, Jim McGulnn, and others. For 
lack of a better label, the movement can be referred to as the 
"clty-folk-blues," and I will not attempt to define It, but to review 
what It encompassed. 

For the persons with the energies and facilities to research, the 
best introduction to the "city-folk-blues" would be to read two 
articles from '*Sing Outl The Folk Song Magazine. "The first is from 
the July *64 Issue, vol, 14, no. 3, and is titled "Country Blues Come 
to Town." It Is a review of the 1964 scene by Paul Nelson, a journa- 
list extremely Involved in the folk music world. The second article 
Is from the September '64 issue, titled •'Country Blues Come to Town; 
A View from the Other Side of the Tracks," black writer Julius 
Lester's reply to Nelson's article. (Anyone wishing to see the 
articles may have them for the price of a Xerox copy. If you're 
interested, they're well worth it.) 

The best form of music documentation, though, Is by record, and 
the best record in this field is The Blues Project: A Compendium 
of the Very Best on the Urban Blues Scene. The record Is available 
on Elektra (EKS.7264), It features Dave Van Ronk, John Koerner, 
Geoff Maldaur, Dave Ray, Eric von Schmidt, and others. There 
are a couple of real nice harp things there by John Sebastian during 
his pre-Lovln' Spoonful days, and a couple of cuts by [>anny Kalb, 
who later on plugged in his guitar with an electric blues group, The 
Blues Project. The record also contains a booklet with biographical 
information and a very good dlscography. 

Yet all of this, so far, hasn't let anyone who doesn't know, to know 
what this 'city-folk43lues' thing really is, other than white musicians 
from the city playing folk-blues. Actually, that Is basically what It 
is. It was, though, a very conscientious movement (and still is, to 
those people who are still In it). Most of the major people involved 
In it spent much time listening to old blues records from the 
twenties and thirties and developed their own musical styles and 
philosophies from their studies. 

One of the best, compact statements on this is from Eric von 
Schmidt's liner notes on the album, Dave Van Ronk Slugs the Blues 
(Verve.Folkways FVS.9006): 

"The blues are common property. The most recent form, the 
most vital In Contemporary American terms, grew from the 
suffering of the southern Negro In slavery times, his frustra- 
tions in the bitter post^Ivll War period, the movement first to 
the big cities, then north. The blues have several easily recog- 
nlzable forms, 12 bar, 8 bar, etc., but now as the wealth of re- 
corded country blues and songs from the southern prisons are 
becoming more widely known, the emphasis is shifting from the 
scholarly Insistence on form to what might be called a 'blues 

Von Schmidt's "blues approach" Is carried to its essence on 
Eric Sings Von Schmidt (Prestige 7384). It contains topical material 
(Blues for Kennedy), humorous blues which are early predecessors 
of the Mothers of Invention (Ballad of Edward Teller, and Acne), 
and more beautiful, but less definable songs wMch are more poetic 
than most of Dylan's work (Rattlesnake Preacher, and Cold Gray 
Dawn, especially, strike me). 

All of this was happening a few years ago, and seemed almost 
dead. Von Schmidt I haven't heard of since the previous album was 
released in 1965. Maldaur was with the Jim Kweskln Jug Band, but 
they've disbanded. Van Ronk has a strange rock group — the Hudson 
Dusters, Koerner, Ray, and Glover (who recorded fbr Elektra) 
arent together anymore, either. But just as I was atrout to eulogize 
all this, I heard Begger's Banquet, the new Rolling Stones album. 
They're doing that kind of thing. Anyway, I knew it wasn't dead, 
because It's still alive in me, and in a lot of people.

On Turning On or The Paranoia Problem 

by Cecil Orin Wise 

Sadly enough an increasing 
number of dirty beatnik queers, 
button-down and button downing 
students, members of the crim- 
inal fringe, compoz heads and 
decomposing heads and "high" 
school teachers have misapplied 
rationality to the point that they 
feel that adjustment to an insane 
world can be realized through 

In their quest for Insanity, 

these young hippie commie pigs, 
reared in the atmosphere of pol- 
luted cities, have been filling the 
air with incense and the streets 
with people, exploiting our rec- 
reatlonal areas for the cheap sen- 
sual thrills of nature, launching 
a campaign of chemical guerilla 
warfare against the western 
mind. They have exploited east* 
em methods to adopt the ancient 
recipes of the east with modern 
western technology to damage 
and distort the fine minds of 
our times. These socially dls- 
torted Individuals are acting to 
corrupt great patterns of our 
twentieth century consciousness, 
or, In their terms "turning on" 
— In the sense of turning nor- 
mally unused sectors of the 
human Intellect. 

If God wanted man to be high 
(turned on or off, depending on 
your perspective, if you have 
one), wouldn't he have been born 
that way? Or was man born high? 
Is it only through drugs and men- 
tal aerosols that man resettles 
himself and precipitates back 
to his true nature? 

The heinous crime that THEY 
(henceforth to be known as 
"they" or "THEM") have turn, 
ed from, or failed to avail them- 
selves of, the legalized skills of 
modern drug technology, to fol- 
low a trail of paranoid depend- 
ence and economic deprivation at 
the wicked hands of the evil dope 
pushers. We God-fearing Ameri- 
cans are all cognizant that crime 
does not pay, yet these wicked In. 
dlviduals persist In their evil 
trade by Introducing the oriental 
conspiracy of communist opiates 
into the heartsand minds of young 

If crime does not pay, why are 
there criminals? This rather aca- 
demic question leads us to the 
belief that either crime does 
pay (inconsistent with our ori- 
ginal premise), ahem, or there 
Is some aesthetic reward in- 
herent in illegality. 

To examine the reasons and 
motivations t)ehlnd the inclina- 
tion toward the consumption of 
Illegal and unwanted dope, we will 

refer to a study undertaken at 
the University of California. 
Seventy-two neatly-dressed law 
students were dispatched into a 
intensive drug-use area, known 
as the Halght-Ashbury district. 
Forty-two percent of the sam- 
ple population, all self-proclaim- 
ed hippies, had no knowledge of 
any Illegal drug use. Twelve 
percent admitted to having oxl- 
dlzed cannlbus in their youth, 
but there wasn't any more In 
town. Twenty-two percent of 
those approached at their homes 
Informed the (ntervie\vers that 
they no longer lived there. Thirty 
percent complained of acid in- 
digestion and retired to their 
rest rooms, declaring them- 
selves unavailable for further 
comment. Three percent of the 
Interview forms were seized by 
interviewees, bent Into tubular 
form and oxidized. 

The remaining one percent, 
informed that they were to be in. 
terviewed, through Interminable 
laughter and obscenity, insisted 
that there were, In fact, "one 
per centers" and offered to do 
their thing. Eighty percent of the 
interviewers refused to discuss 
their things. The remaining 
twenty percent were classified 
I-Y and were asked to return In 
one year. Further, of the seven- 
ty-two interviewers, twenty-three 
failed to return alter the first 

The results of this study were 
convincing, If Inconclusive. This 
report concluded, aware of the In- 
conclusive ness of rampant be- 
havlorallsm and finding no solace 
in the "man Is but a realization 
of himself" thinking of modern 
theorists, that the absolute truth 
lies In the premise ttiat 
illegality yields a paranoia which 
may be viewed as a positive dls. 
pleasure. One hippie said that 
paranoia, I.e., the fear of being 
busted with concomitant loss of 
status and stash. Is nowhere near 
89 bad as actrwlTy Hjeliiy trustetf. 
Another saw paranoia as a di- 
sease that had its cure In the 
physical annihilation of all police- 
men ("pigs"). One young man 
saw paranoia as an inconvenience 
but a conquerable one. "Paranoia 
is based on the fact that you don't 
know how close they are to finding 
you out and busting you. Hence, 
If they ever do bust you youll 
know exactly where you are; 
and your paranoia will end." 

From these conclusions, we 
may speculate that the pleasure 
compulsives of our society — the 
hippies — would prefer the en- 
joy their false sense of well* 
being without the paranoic rest- 
dues. If some substitute for this 
Ufe style couldl>e found, we would 
be able to steer our clean and 
true young men away from a life 
of crime which leads, as we all 
know, to heroin addiction, prosti- 
tution, berl-berl and death.

A Letter 

(At the end of the Christmas 
vacation several CLC students 
held a seminar off-campus, In 
order to discuss radtcallzatlon 
and Involvement at Cal Lutheran. 
The following Is a reply to those 
attending the seminar from an 
ex-CLC student. It speaks for it- 
Dear John, Doug, BUI, and. . . 

Did I read some mention of 
radio allzatlon of a campus where 
comfortable naivete is at Its 
helghth? t have the feeling that 
It would be presumptuous of me 
to say "good luck." 

Communal living, for a few 
days — good. I find thou^ that 
unaware people have quite a bit 
of trouble expressing or "shar- 
ing" self, simply because they 
aren't aware of self, I hope you 
succeed In bringing about sin- 
cere communication In every 
sense of the words. Most of all, 
I hope you effect change, but 
unless the people are open to 
change, you'll probably have suc- 
ceeded In nothing more than four 
groovy or four frustrating days 
of interesting conversation, 

I don't know in what particular 
way you want to change CLC. 
I suppose you only want to make 
It somewhat bearable and a bit 
Is the basis of life and It should 
school's hangup. I know what I 
want changed In the educational 
system. Maybe you're Just speak- 
ing about awakening a bit of CLC 
to life thou^. I can't speak any 
longer about CLC's superficial- 
ity, Insipidity, and hypocrisy. 
no longer go there; I can only 
speak about what I want to see 
and feel in the places I may go.) 
CLC's no different, really, than 
the vast majority of places. Ttiey 
just don't know, they Just don't 
see, and their preoccupation with 
trivialities makes them avoid 
any awareness, realization or en- 
lightenment that could lead to 
honest happiness. I'm speaklngof 
Life I guess, but then learning 
Is the bases of life and It should 
involve a heightening of aware- 
ness, insights, and perceptions. 
It should lead to wisdom and true 
understanding. It shouldn't be 
boring, sterile, and competitive. 
Each learning experience should 
be exciting or learning is not 
taking place. — From the four 
year old who sees the develop- 
ment of a butterfly from a cater- 
piller and caccoon to the 14 
year old or 20 year old or 40 
year old who figures out a bit of 
physics or sees the simplicity 
and rationality In science. Each 
phase of learning should be a step 
of awareness. 

I'm teaching pre-school chil- 
dren now and I wanted to cry at 
the treatment they're subjected 
to. They're told what to do and 
how to do it. And worst of all, 
they're told what to think and how 
to think It. Oh yes, and they'd 
better damn well mlndt It breaks 
my heart to see a child getting 

uptight because he or she color- 
ed out of the lines accidentally 
with the wrong color. What the 
hell's the wrong color? And those 
lines, are they boundaries? 
They're such individual people 
who need praise, love, freectom, 
and mental excitement. They're 
learning at a tender age, thou^, 
that it doesn't pay to draw some- 
thing different than they're told 
to draw or go to the window be- 
cause they're interested In what's 
outside, TTiey learn the game at 
an early age. Only when they're 
older will they feel the total 
frustration of "games" — when 
they do, they'll either adjust to 
the frustration like the masses, 
or feel very angry because of the 
fact that they've been subjected 
to absurdity or have the courage 
to view life honestly and live it. 
I know the latter will only be a 
reality for a few, If that. I don't 
want to be another "warden" to 
those children, and I hope I'm 
not copping out, I've got to under- 
stand them and give them the op- 
portunity to express themselves 
• . . But I don't know . . . How 
do you say to some people that 
you're "wrong" to **adjust" 
these little people to a "system," 
instead, we should be exposing 
them to Life. If people don't un- 
derstand or feel Life, they don't 
know what you're talking about. 
(Could "nice" people be obli- 
vious of their Ignorance?) 

It's important that I talk about 
the pre-school people (commonly 
referred to and treated like 
"children" In the most humiliat- 
ing fashion) because thats where 
everything begins. 

I honestly don't think youll 
amount of change on that campus 
of yours unless the people that 
control that place dnd it expedient 
to change, and that's usually not 
very honest change. What type 
of change do you want to start 
with? Is It the opportunity to 
ask, without being hasselled, 
"controversial" speakers to 
come to your college? That is, the 
opportunity to hear someone tell- 
ing all of you that you're 
"f. . . ."? You know full well 
that he's going to say all those 
"nasty" words because he real. 
Izes that everyone's going to 
play the superficial game again 
and get mad, not because the 
words really tx)ther them, but 
because what he's actually say. 
ing bugs them to an endless de- 
gree. That those representations 
of the "affluent 2/3 rds",'*white 
middle class," what have you, 
would not be hostile if that man 
weren't hitting them with what 
hurts, a truth. (And you KNOW, 
as much as they like to repress 
it, those people In that audience 
know Us a truthi) It's groovy to 
expose people to what Is con- 
sidered "radical," but their ab- 
surdity and Ignorance has brought 
about such a term. That "speak- 
er" has won the minute he steps 
on that stage andopens his mouth, 
and he knows It. He's Just con- 
firming his knowledge the minute 
one of those "aged foetuses" 
starts blubbering about seman- 
tics rather than meaning.

Minutes Iron 
the Underground Meeting 

by Bill Carlsen 

No. 4 

From the foothills of the Conejo Valley 
We stared down upon 

the thousand bulldozed oaks 

turned Into massive culture shelters 

for a culture absurd and for some 

(even many) 

And off in the distance can be seen 
(too real to be a hallucination) 
The children emerging from the shelters 
further frustrating their culture, 

In an asphalt parking lot 

eating hamburgers 

with no place else to go. 
And where once Matt Dillon Cs double) 
rode his horse across the 

scenic set 

a child fires the last cap 
from his Mattell, 

and decides to go home. 
Play is over, Dbiner awaits. Culture can be seen 
after dinner 

{pre-planned with the aid 

of the TV Guide.) 

Having seen and having to believe 
We descended from the foothills 

And chased the sole-surviving Conejo 
'til the Sunday hunter fired and hit. 

We fell, 


Oh well, what other changes do 
you want? The people are going 
to have to go through changes 
first, don't you think? 

This may be a step toward "in- 
volvement" and I hope "unity" 
has meaning too. But until more 
than Just a few understand the 
wisdom of Christ and feel those 
words "In Christ," because they 
feel what that man felt, than I 
doubt that total unity or honest 
involvement will take place. But 
you are trying to make it take 
place and that's important, but 
only Important If something does 
happen. Right now, the masses 
are a far cry from the realiza- 
tion of Christ, and ultlmatelyany 
real concept or feeling of God 
or the meaning behind the word 

I may as well continue rapping 
while I feel so Involved In try- 
ing to talk to you people as warm- 
ly as possible, despite the feel- 
ing of detachment a letter can 
have. I'd rather be speaking to 
and seeing you people. 

I was listening to Donovan the 
other night, a singer, and an 
aware poet of this time. Happi- 
ness in all It's lightness and 
beauty Is Donovan; the peaceful 
mind Is Donovan; and Love, spo- 
ken very softly and spiritually Is 
Donovan. What characterizes 
him Is communicated through 
his music. I felt "right" with 
myself. However, the mood was 
short-lived because a radio was 
turned on in the other room and 
I heardsomeonefbrcefulty speak- 
ing. Suddenly I felt a contrast in 
mood, I was hearing a notable 
minister speaking to thousands of 
people about how it was our "pa- 
triotic duty" to support the war 
in Vietnam, while Donovan kept 
on singing "Wear yourLoveLIke 

The the realization came back 
again. The contrast between what 
is and what is being fought 

That man in hispulpit preaches 

the fundamental teachings of love 
and brotherhood. But, seemingly, 
that's where It stops. They're 
Just "fundamental teachings," 
they're not felt, they're not prac- 
tically applied. That's basically 
why there's revolution. 

I think the minister and his 
"flock" missed Christ's point 
if he and they could, with free 
consciences, talk about support- 
ing war — supporting something 
which Is the basest form of des- 
truction man could conceive of, 
and then again, with clear con- 
sciences, have the unmitigated 
gall to speak of the moral cor- 
ruption flowing like a tidal wave 
through this country, through 
"this generation." 

"This generation's" morality 
is based on human feeling, human 
awareness, and human respect. 
If we break things down on an 
individual basis, one man naked, 
standing next to another man, 
naked^ of the same or different 
color, we see two men, made the 
same, two legs, same tissue, 
bleeding the same, breathing the 
same air, hurting because they 
both feel, (why destroy them?) 
They each balance out In capa- 
bllitles or Intelligence too, be- 
cause twth are more capable than 
one another In certain realms, If 
Its Just one's magnificent appre- 
elation of a sunset and another's 
capacity to work with numbers in 
his mind. But, put a finer bit of 
clothes on one, color him 
**white," give him a metallically 
vibrant colored automobile, 
more '^)Dportunity" and "edu- 
cation," add a vast amount of 
dogma that he's conditioned beau- 
tifully to support and adhere to, 
make him critical of his fellow 
man to Insure superiority, and 
we have the recipe for the en- 
viable, 'better" man In this 
society. "Hiat's particularly 
strange to us. 

What's also strange is that jus- 
tice is equated with what is pro- 
nounced "law and order," which 
for a large part, enforces laws 
against personal and private 
doings rather than enforcing laws 
against man's Inhumanity toman, 
the real crime. 

We feel that we people shouldbe 
honest with ourselves and each 
other and admit, without fear of 
rejection, our realization about 
an efficient progress that's mak- 
ing us forever uneasy, hurried, 
and discontent. We feel that we 
should take stock of ourselves 
put a mirror up to the image of 
ourselves and realize ourselves 
as well as our relationship to 
others and the world around us. 

And we ask, that with all man 
has to learn about the earth, 
man himself, the complexities of 
the mind, the speculations of 
philosophy, to name a few things 
why is he busy with insipid 
dogmas and Inhumane games of 
war and prejudice? 

For myself, I've come to a 
rather happy awareness, despite 
the odds against It. I feel peace- 
fully sad but appreciative of Life. 
I feel more than ever In my life 
that I have so much to do, ex- 
perience, appreciate and try to 
rectify, while "Doing my thing" 
fbr myself and for those that I 
can possibly offer something to, 
A lot seems to be offered to me 
now, if its just the study of an 
individual human being In a per- 
son I'm talking to. I feel an 
Interest, an excitement, a need 
to love, and a sadness. . . A long 
haired cat wearing sandels and 
the sign of peace, standlngbeside 
a girl he digs, quietly holding her 
hand, gives me a serene tender- 
ness for him, and a man that cri- 
ticizes him makes me wonder why 
knowing why, and then feeling 
exasperated in my knowledge that 
that man, with his poor brain- 
washed mind and tx)dy, might, 
only might, be changed in the pro- 
cess of necessary revolution. 
And I have to be a part of that 
revolution. . , 

Let me say, that "our gene- 
ration" can simply define itself 
by saying: "We want to make 
Donovan's reality ours," we no 
longer want to be a part of 
an existence that has dogmatized, 
mechanized, sterilized, and de- 
humanized the faithful, ac- 
qulesing lapdogs bunched to- 
gether and labelled "society," 

You see, we don't happen to 
think that "patriotic duty" or 
translated, pitting young man 
against young man to kill or be 
killed, comes before duty to self 
and mankind; and we don't want 
to be accepting, good and bad 
boys and girls, but rather, moral 
courageous men and women. We 
don't need to know what's '•pro- 
per," but rather, what's right. 

Our morality, our human feel- 
ings cannot be dogmatized. We 
have come to some sort of an 
awareness that the biggest sin is 
man's Inhumanity to man, phy- 
sically and mentally, con- 
sciously, and unconslously.

Once Again, 

Lightly Now 

Unless you tried very, very 
hard, It wasn't easy to avoid 
reading the letter written by 
Miss Shirley Hartwlg to the stu- 
dents of CLC, The way In which 
the letter was written was clever, 
and selective, and It Is true that 
there are not enough students 
who wUI honestly express 
thoughtK)ut reactions. But this 
Is as far as my appreciation for 
what Miss Hartwlg wrote can go. 
The author of an article that 
could get Into the hands of every 
student, professor, and member 
of the administration must cer- 
tainly be aware of the vast Im- 
plications Involved In speaking 
accurately on behalf of a major 
segment of the college commun. 
Ity — namely, the women. Per- 
haps If greater care and thou^t 
had gone Into the examination of 
the letter, the author would have 
realized the great responsibility 
of evaluating and Interpreting any 
piece of literature for someone 
else. For Instance, quibbling over 
dress regulations Is a great way 
to cloud a real issue presented; 
In particular, the total absurdity 
of dress regulations. Period, 

It seems that Miss Hartwlg Is 
convinced that the women of Cal 
Lutheran do not cloister them- 
selves nor allowthemselvestobe 
treated as children. In trying to 
make her point, she states (per* 
joratlveiy) that Guth and Rom. 
merelm "downgrade everything 
• . . when the very purpose of 
such programs Is to help wo- 
men students expand their views 
by talking and listening to other 
students. , ." (i.e., other women). 

I can not quite bring myself to 
the point of "resenting* what 
Miss Hartwlg has expressed, 
however, since it is just this 
righteous attitude which has al- 
lowed governments to "legls. 
late" morality. And more con. 
cretely, which has allowed any 
number of social inequities to be 
fblsted off on minorities by pre- 
sumptuous majorities. And If 
Guth and Rommerelm do not cre- 
dit the women of CLC with being 
"sensible," It Is not an Injustice 
towards them, for the term is yet 
another perjorltive.propagandls- 
tic one, standing for all that Is 
good, reasoned, and real to Miss 
Hartwig, and standing foraborted 
minds, logical absurdities, and 
self-denial from another's view- 

If Guth and Rommerelm *s let- 
ter really said nothing (really 
now, nothing?) about hours or 
where women "should" smoke on 
campus, It just might betiiatthey 
think any such rules and regu- 
lations O^leaseconsiderthatword 
seriously) are absurd, parent and 
religion-pleasing methods of 
structuring attitudes. Emotions, 
And minds. Any woman can In- 
deed bring her "request" before 
the AWS Senate which, as Miss 
Hartwig says, "Is composed of 
women who themselves must fol- 
low the present policies," I only 
understand that the structure en- 
forces rules wllch enforce obe- 
dience to structures which are 
not freely decided, but struct- 
ured along very specific lines by 
the very structure Itself. And, 
to you. Miss Hartwlg, I honestly 
ask, do you not see the con- 
tradiction in your two state- 
ments, **the reason fbr closing 
hours Is the protection of the 
women students," and "But, a 
curfew on hours Is not going to 
protect the morals of any woman 
at CLC"? And to each woman: 
can you possibly think you can put 
yourself in the position of pro- 
tecting any other person's 
Morals? Even talking In these 
terms Is ridiculous, for It pre- 
sumes a set, unswerving devo- 
tion to some ^Lny) absolute moral 
system or law. Just as laws 
^d possibly Godfc)) are created 

by men, it Is the projection of 
one's own values forcibly, and 
in this manner only, which will 
make such a system "work." 

That the women themselves, 
and only they themselves, will 
decide when a change in stan- 
dards is due Is only too obvious- 
ly, and sadly, true. For the will 
(or lack of it. If you know what 
I mean) of the majority will be 
used to reinforce the structure. 
Whether or not most women need 
or desire their complete social 
mobility Is not the Issue, and the 
mlnori^ here know this. The 
view from the top of the hill can- 
not be seen, or Imagined, from 
the bottom, or vice-versa. If that 
please you better. 

I do not believe I have the 
support of the Majority of the 
men at CLC. It probably does 
not matter to them, for they 
are somewhere else on that 
hill. But 11, oh yes, if they lived 
with the same rules as the wo- 
men, I wonder just how long 
this superstructure would exist. 

And finally, referring to an 
earlier point, Miss Hartwlgwould, 
I hope, understand that not all 
activities cited In the original 
letter were being subjected to 
criticism. It Is, hopefully, valid 
to ask why these activities are 
confined to a segregated, select 
group, the women. Sex discus- 
sions between men are quite 
different from sex discussed dur- 
ing devotions by women. Islands 
in the ocean seldom come Into 
contact unless some unprobalile 
natural phenomena occurs, and 
even then, the Islands are more 
probable to sink. 

If one can rethink a position, 
It Just might be possible to see 
deeper problems which were pre- 
sented In Uie original letter. 
Swimming to the New World 
Mainland, I am yours,

B-Ballers Have Tough Time 


The Klngsmen basketball team 
this year seems to be picking 
lip where It left off last year, 
despite the addition of some 
bright prospects In the form of 
new faces and some old re- 
turnees, who did not play last 
year. Last year, the Kingsmen 
finished with a 2 win and 24 
loss rocord. This year, they 
have only managed 1 win In 
their first ten games. They have 
lost to Whlttler in their opening 
game and then dropped three 
straight to Redlands, Chapman, 
and Westmont In the Redlands 
Tourney — another loss, this 
time to Pomona and then a win 
over Westmont 80 to 72. Since 
that win there have been four 
straight losses at the hands of 
Redlands, La Verne, UCSD, and 
Cal Western. 

Two ofthelastlosseshaveljeen 

close and may mark a rejuvena- 
tion of the Kingsmen. LastSatur- 
day night the Kingsmen barely let 
Cal Western off the hook, losing 

71 to 66. The story so far this 
year has been one of in- 
consistency, something whtch 00- 
cured many times last year. The 
Kingsmen experience difficulty 
in putting together two complete 
halves of basketball. Some bright 
spots in the Kingsmen effort so 
far has been seen In the play of 
stellar forward Mike Mayfleld, 
who leads the club in rebounding 
and most of the time In scoring. 
Another good performer has been 
Larry Peoples, a hustling 5-9 
guard, who is a transfer from 
Barstow J.C.. Forward Bruce 
Benson, has played well asoflate, 
and sophomore forward Randy 
Phillips, has been a steady per- 

by Frank Nausin 

This past weekend the Kings- 
men journeyed to San Diego, to 
play UCSD on Friday and Cal 
Western on Saturday. They were 
completely shelled by UCSD 95 
to 68, and as stated earlier, 
they barely lost to Cal Western. 

This week the Kingsmen take 
on Biola at Blola on Tuesday, 
meet Occidental In the Sports 
Arena, and then come home on

CUB Board Begins Action 

At the regular CUB Board 
meeting, held on Wednesday, Jan- 
uary 22, attention was finally 
turned away from the usual mun- 
dane Items such as leaky roofs, 
**no smoking" signs, and other 
maintenance Items to a much 
more important area — namely 
re -structuring the present CUB 
structure to make It the true cen- 
ter of student activities and stu- 
dent life on this campus. This 
re.structurlng wUI focus atten. 
tlon on the fact that this is a 
STUDENT UNION and that since 
students pay twenty dollars per 
year for dally operation and re- 
payment to the college for Its 
Initial Investment students will 
assume the authority andrespon- 
slblUty that has been theirs all 

An argument has l>een raised 
that since the college made the 
Initial investment for the CUB 
building it should be considered 
a "college" facility with equal 
privileges for students, faculty, 
administrators, and staff. Each 
of these groups Is encouraged 
and welcomed to use the facili- 
ties. However, since the funds 
spent InltlaUy on the buUdingare 
considered as a loan to the ASB 
and students are paying this loan 
off, while at the same time car- 
rying the burden of Its daily 

operation It must be considered 
a student Union. Because of the 
fact that Faculty, Administra- 
tors, and Staff members make no 
significant contributions to the 
CUB fund the students must exert 
the authority belonging to them. 

Paramount In this re - struc- 
turing Is the amount of student 
Involvement In the choice of a 
new CUB Director to take Mr. 
Creason's place after this aca- 
demic year. Since the CUB Di- 
rector's salary is paid from 
student funds, students must have 
the final decision as to who this 
person is to be. More Important- 
ly, students must decide on this 
new person because upon his 
shoulders will fall the task of 
co-ordinating student activities 
on campus and acting as a liaison 
between the students and the 
Dean of Students. Also, the Di- 
rector will be responsible for the 
operation and activities m the 
Student Union Building Itself. 

This action will be the first 
concrete example of students hav- 
ing a controlling part In the se- 
lection of people who exert a 
great deal of influence in the 
shaping of events which vitally 
concern not only students but 
our entire campus community.

To Discuss Dead Sea Scrolls, 
Vatican II 

A dynamic report of some of the changes the Dead Sea Scrolls

A.K. Staak in a three lecture serlesjanuary 30-31, 1969 at California 
Lutheran College in Thousand ^ich he will have expressed 

Oaks. Dr. Staak's first lecture 
will take place In the college 
auditorium at 8:15 p.m. where 
he will present the results of 
his Investigation into biblical 
scrolls. The following morning 
at a President's Convocation, 
Staak, who is well-known as a 
teacher of Bible studies on na- 
tionwide television, will speak to 
the issue of "Vatican n." Later 
In the afternoon of January 31, 
the college community will 
engage Dr. Staak in an informal 
discussion concerning the views 

during his two lectures. 

Dr. Staak, a German.twm pro- 
fessor, has led numerous Bible 
studies at summer conferences 
of the Lutheran Church In 
America and other denomina- 
tions. He is also chairman of 
the Department of Religion at 
Muhlenberg College in Allentown, 
Pennsylvania. In 1965 he received 
the Gabriel Award of the Ameri- 
can Association of Catholic 
Broadcasters for the best Pro- 
testant television show of 1964. 
He is the author of several books. 

Courses To Be Offered 

The administration of California Lutheran College is most recep- 
tlve to the legltlmale request of the black students that attention be 
given to the presentation of course offerings dealing with problems, 
concerns and contributions of black people. Further, the adminlstra- 
tlon desires to implement such appropriate requests on the basis 
that It Is right and proper, at this season in the history of man, to 
correct Inequities of the past. While there may be differences of 
opinion, among blacks and whites alike, as to the exact way to 
proceed in structuring such course offerings it seems most appro, 
prlate to deal with the problem immediately rather than to delay 
progress with debate. At this moment in time, therefore, it is much 
more than simply meeting the demands of expediency to add to our 
curriculum the neeJed and academically justifif^d courses which 
will Inform, enlighten and further the search for truth, as well as 
hasten the discovery of true brotherhood of man. Courses thus 
Introduced will subsequently and undoubtedly be modified and en- 
rlched by continuing debate, but at least the way things are In our 
world will not be ignored for the present. Lastly, It is exceedingly 
fitting that such a section occur on our campus. 

What action has already been taken? Already, during the first 
quarter of our academic year a course In Afro-American Literature 
had been Introduced. This course drew to our campus several black 
people who participated in Its presentation. 

In the Winter Quarter, Florance Duncan, a black professor, is 
teaching the course Afro-American Cultural History. 

On Wednesday, January 22, the Educational Policies Committee 
approved the following courses for presentation in the Spring Quar. 
ter, subject to approval by the faculty at its February meeting. 
Political Science 482 
The Black Citizen in U.S. Politics 
Philosophy 495 

Philosophy of Racism and Black Power (Several Black lecturers 

In similar fashion, for the Summer Session the following courses 
have been approved by EPC and will be submitted to the faculty for 


History S 313— The Common Wealth of Nations In Africa. 

On the drawing board, the Business and Economics Department Is 
drating a course In the Afro-American History of Economics. 
We see then a total of seven courses already established or immi- 
nently so. A number of different departments have responded to 
the challenge. To construct a pattern of development which is logical 
structuring of these emerging offerings 1 have charged the Inter 
Cultural Studies Committee hi a memo dated January 13, 1969: 

**It Is time to consider the establishment of a program In Afro- 
American Studies. I would request, therefore, that you take 
Immediate steps to study this problem and develop recommenda. 
tlons for Its establishment- It seems feasible that such a program 
should be developed on an In ter -depart mental structure, so please 
consider this phase in your deliberations." 

It is a reasonable, then, to conclude that a program will be developed 
under the aegis of Intercultural Studies with a sub-heading of Afro- 
American or Black Studies. 

The administration, sensing, also, that a significant contribution can 

be made in this field by Including In established courses pertinent 
materials relevant to the Black people of our country and the world, 
has encounaged individual professors to Include such material where-, 
ever possible. A survey of faculty is being made to inform the Inter- 
cultural Studies Committee of what each professor is doing in this 

Presently, negotiations are underway with Washington, D.C. 
to secure federal funds for additional development of the Afro- 
American Program . I trust this progress report will clearly delineate 
the position of the administration and demonstrate their intent to 
promote a program of action rather than contemplation In a vital 
area of American life.

This quarter the Political

a olasB In International Orgonl* 
aatlons. The focus of the class 
is on the League of Nations 
and the United Nations. With a 
olass of this nature, the In* 
itruotor Dr. Tseng decided to 
try an Innovation at CLC — 4hat 
is to take his class to New Yorit 
to visit the United Nations itself 
and get first hand Impreasloni 
of what goes on there. When 
talking to Mary ISUen Lea, a 
senior political sclenoe major, 
she said concerning the purpose 
of the trip that '*we would like 
to supplement our knowledge of 
International organiaatlons by 
actually observing the United Na» 
tlons this spring* Not only 
would we see the proceedings of 
this World Organisation in per- 
son, but we would have the op- 
portunity to discuss the fbrmu*

ious delegations and prominent 
government officials." 

The group Impt*) to raise atwut 
$S,000 before tlie quarter break 
80 at least some of the students 
In the cla.<iB will be able lu make 
the trip. Money Is the main ob- 
stacle for the success of the ven-

This Is the flr«t time that CLC

Spiritual Re-emphasIs Week 

by nob Pasichl 

The sky Is falllngt That big button of light Is unnewn and has 
fallen behind the puffy moisture Is produced! likewise, that Omni- 
potent being "out there" is reasoned away by the mhitl He hag 
created. Just as our symbol of optimism is obscured by the watery 

sky so Is our oonoept of Qod obsoured by the logical mind. 

In this atmosphere of rain and skepticism. Spiritual Reemphasls 
Week had Its beginning. Pastor Trout started off the first day 
stressing '*Our Humanity," Upon this foundation, he buUt his entire 
presentation. Thoughts crossed my mind. Computer world — am 
I really a human? All of the rest of you are humans lilte me. 1 
wonder If It's really important to think about It. Is there anything 
to believe? Who or what Is God? How bIibU I die? 

Tuesday evening an excellent movie was presented — "The 
Road Sign of the Merry-go-Round," Many of Trout's Ideas were 
exemplified In It. Basically, It represented two fellow humans 
trying to find theniaelves In our mduern world. This brought about 
more thinking and questioning. 

The higlilight of the week came with the coffee House. SUvla 
broke down the barriers of our Inhibitions by expressbig free emo* 
tlon. She moved about the floor In a flighty fashion from topic to 
topic as the mind goes. Laughter Is always a great way to relax 
an audience, and this device she also used. 

When Miss Walden had us sufficiently receptive. Pastor Trout 
onoe again addressed us with a summation of his week here. 1 
tried to summarise this into one sentence, but t had to apply to 
Trout for help. We finally came up with a sentence sometlitng 
like thlst through helping oUiers, we find ourselves, our humanity. 

Bllvla'a more serious presentation tied In beautifully with many 
of Trout's ideas. Many of her expressions were thoughts about 
death, tn my opinion, nothing is more inevitable about life than 
death. Man cannot know his humanity without knowing how to die* 
When man Is faced with the idea of death, he begins to think about 

Buffalo Sill's DefUnat

and break onetwothreefourfive plgeonsjustilkethat 

he WBi a handaomt man 

and what I want to know is 
how do you like your blueeyed boy 
Milter Death 

o.e* Cummlngs 

tn this poem, I think Silvia was trying to convey to us the Idea 
that Jesus was not the blue<eyed Scandinavian as we sometimes 
picture him. Another thing I think that she was stressing Is Uie human- 
ity of Jeius by comparing him to Buffalo Bill. Thirdly, I think that 
Miss Walden wanted us to ask ourselves the question, "Where is 
Jesus now?" 

lilvia also quoted. ", . . when I died, they washed me out of the 
turret with a hone.*' This straightforward thought brought home the 
Idea of Viet Nsm. 

The culmination of the evening and the week was brought about by 
the Aga(to Feast. Dr, Kuethe asked for ojien thinking from the group 
AB each bidlvlduat made himself a part of the circuit. "Hey, I'm 
human and so are you — ftmny thing." "1 love ynur smile, please 
wear It every 'lay," "I love evprybody, even If tliey don't have a 
funny beard like mine." 

The feeling was spontaneous and soon the circuit flowed with the 
electricity of love, "All you need Is love." The circuit brake In one 
piece, but the tightly entwined wire remained charged, charged 
enough to move all over campus end throw sparks. 

To say that Spiritual tte'emphasls Week took away our skepticism 
and dnulif, would 1)p to speak n gross exaggprnllon, Hut this week did 
bring some new tliuughtn and Ideas to Uiink about, it showed snme of 
the students that they can love their fellow man If the barriers are 
removed. Just as we had optimism that the rain would stop, we had 
optimism that we nilght have found some concept of Ood.

This condensation of music from the movie soundtrack makes

out all the repetition Inherent In the original flip side, a tremendous, 
ftiUyorchestrated, though psychedellcally*orIented symphony.

Two of Chopin's greatest piano pieces welded with the virtuoso

The DECREE (C.L.C.'s campus literary magazine) has died of 
natural causes — apathy, lack of financial backing, lack of staff. 

When the participants of the Student Leaders' Retreat declared 
the DECREE, as formally dead, the **Mountclef ECHO" took on 
the responsibility of being the medium for the distribution of crea- 
tive writing at California Lutheran College. During the past few 
weeks, the ECHO has exhibited a significant amount of creative 
writing material. 

However, some of 'our readers have come to feel that creative 
writing Is limited to or controlled by certain persons. Such an 
assumption Is definitely erroneous. 

All contributions (of every kind) from C.L.C, students are heartily 
welcomed by the ECHO. The requirements for any contribution are 

a) aU contributions must be neatly typed and double-spaced on 
on one side of the paper only; 

b) all contributions must reach the ECHO office by noon on the 
Monday preceding the date of publication; 

c) all contributions must be legibly signed by the author.

Identity Crises 

Who Am I? 

by Eric Johnson 

Who Am I — one of the many 
haunting questions brought Into 
focus during Spiritual Re-em- 
phasis Week — Is a question 
which one has to find the answer 
for himself. The film ''Signposts 
on a Merry-go»Round" was just 
one of the many programs which 
tried to prod the students of 
CLC to ask such basic questions 
as Who Am I? — Where Am I 
Going? — What Is The Meaning 
of Life?. 

"Signposts on a Merry-go- 
Round" centered upon human re- 
lationships, mainly that of a mar- 
ried couple trying to find their 
Identity in each other. And yet 
at the end of the film, one real- 
ized that the question "Who Am 
I'* was still unanswered because 
one cannot find his total identity 
In human relationships. Human 
Interaction helps one to find part 
of his identity. One realizes 
through his relationships with 
others that he Is human as well 
as they. But so what — What 
does It mean to say that one 

Is human? When one grasps his 
humanity one comes to the real- 
ization that he is limited (finite) 
as well as his fellow homo sa. 
plens. Because of human limita- 
tions we are interdependent upon 
each other — we need one an- 
other. But knowing this does not 
solve the enigma of identity — 
it is merely a start. Only In 
Christ will one come to an aware- 
ness of his true identity and by 
knowing who he is, he can then 
relate to others. "As many as 
received Him (Christ), to them 
He gave the right to become chil- 
dren of God," (John 1:12) A Christ- 
Ian is a child of God: he Is Iden- 
tified with Christ, the Son of 
God. Herein is identity: "For 
all of you who were baptized Into 
Christ have clothed yourselves 
with Christ." (Gal, 3:27) One 
can know who one is when one 
personally knows Christ, who is 
truly Human and is yet at the 
same time God, May you find true 
Identity — then you will be free 
to love, free to serve.

Coming Soon: 100 Minute Classes 

Tired of going to 55 minute 
classes four days a week? Well, 
whether you are or not, a com- 
pletely new schedule has been 
approved by the Acuity and is 
definitely going into effect fall 
quarter 1969. There will be basic- 
ally two types of classes: 65 
minute classes that will meet 
three days a week and 100 mi- 
nute classes that will meet only 
twice a week. The rationale be- 
hind this change Is that both 
students and faculty will have 
more time out of class under 
■ the new arrangement. Profes- 
sors will then be able to help In- 
dividual students more and stu- 
dents will be able to better pre- 
pare for each class session. 

Idealistic ally, classes that will 
meet two days a week would meet 
on Tuesday and Thursday, while 
classes that meet three days a 
week would meet on Monday, 
Wednesday and Friday. With this 
arrangement the student would 
have a full day to prepare be* 
fore that class meets again. It 
seems, however, that faculty 
members are asked to keep one 
day free for meetings, etc. Since 
this Is the case, the three day a 
week classes will probably meet 
something like Monday, Tuesday 
Friday or Monday, Thursday, 
Friday, where the student will 
still have classes two days In 
succession. But then, this sys- 

by Pam Dalessi 

tem Is better than having two 
class days in succession twice 
a week as we have now. 

A rather obvious and probably 
the most important drawback 
to the whole system is the dif- 
ficulty of keeping a class awake 
^ot to mention attentive and in- 
terested) for 100 minutes. As 
students have experienced, after 
listening and taking notes for an 
hour, if writer's cramp hasn't 
set in twredom surely will. Con- 
versely, It would seem that pro- 
fessors wouldn't look forward 
to expounding their knowledge 
tor 100 minutes straight either, 
but then maybe . . . 

Another hang-up is that some 
classes simply don't facilitate 
the longer class session: speci- 
fically beginning classes In for* 
eign language and classes In the 
natural sciences, Tlie language 
classes, for example, at the stage 
consist primarily of drill and 
memorization which requires 
dally practice. It will be neces- 
sary for many reasons, there- 
fore, to continue with 55 minute 
classes four times a week for 
beginning foreign language and 
natural science classes. 

At first, admittedly the regis- 
trar's office is going to be hor- 
ribly confused, but after the In- 
itial jolt the routine shouldn't be 
much worse. The question Is 
though, will It be much better?

Stvdeit Union? 
College Union? 

by Willie Ware 

A.S.B. President 

Students, this is the proposi- 
tion: Is the CUB a STUDENT 
Wouldn't It be better Uthe $20.00 
per year you pay to support the 
CUB, and the $10.00 you pay for 
academic social fee were some- 
how combined Into one budget to 
upgrade life at CLC? ? ? These 
are questions which will be 
resent you on the CUB Board 
(the controlling body of the 
CUB) attempt to change the 
CUB Into the geographical cen- 
ter of student government and 
the center forcoordinatingsoclal 
life on campus. In fact, the CUB 
should be operated by students, 
since it Is owned by students. 

It is presently being contem- 
plated that a new position of So- 
cial Coordinator be created, and 
filled by a person directly re- 
sponsible to the CUB. Students 
should have a major voice in the 
selection of this individual. 

Believe It or not, the Coffee 
House is still a live option and 
will also come under CUB juris- 
diction. This too should be con- 
trolled by students. 

At any point during the day, 
If you go down to the CUB you 
will find only 10 or 20 students 
there. This lack of use could be 
due to limited space and facil- 
ities, or attributed to the fact 
that the CUB has never been 
represented as a '^^ve", "hap- 
pening" place on campus. The 
foyer of Mountclef Is more of a 
student center than the CUB. So 
what are you getting for your 
$20.00? Presently, not very 
much. But with a Union designed 
to be the center of campus life, 
you can get a lot more than just 
pool or ping-pong or a televi- 
sion which Is out of order the 
greater proportion of the year. 

Tim Kuehnel, Scott Gordon, 
Wllllw Ware, Dean Gangsel, and 
Mr. Wolf comprise a committee 
which Is attempting to revise the 
entire CUB structure. You are 
encouraged to contact any of 
these men if you have sugges- 
tions for improving the CUB. 
In the meantime, start asking 
some of the questions which we 
Intend to raise. Just where is 
the $20.00 paid by each full 
time student going?

During the days set aside Ibr 
Spiritual Re-emphasIs Week, 
CLC was privileged to have a 
man on its campus. Pastor Nel- 
son Trout, a black Lutheran mln- 
Ister, gave several sermons and 
Introduced films. He also Intro- 
duced many phrases to think 
about "Don't let anybody tell 
you how to die," "is your God 
big enough, whoever he may 
be?." "What can I believe?," 
*Tf the church ignores the prob. 
lems of the world, it is active 
In the desecration of Itself," 
He described violence, he op- 
posed things ministers "aren't 
supposed to oppose." He stood 
his ground like a huge redwood 
tree whenever confronted with 
questions or conflicting ideolo- 
gies. Pastor Trout had all the 
vigor a person needs to succeed 
in "life." AU who heard him 
did not agree but It was said, 
"he's real"; "openmlnded"; 
"really knows where it's at," 
This man came and stood and is 
now standing. Pastor Nelson 
Trout has made friends here at 
CLC but more than that we have 
met a man.

Liberal Focism 

Fascism, as a philosophy, Is usually regarded as having "kicked 
the bucket" at the end of World War n. 

Fascism was a spiritual, antl-materialistic philosophy which glori- 
fied the State, advocated authoritarian dictatorship, and subordinated 
the will of the Individual to the mystical will of the Greater Com- 
munlty. Private property was recognized by law, but all property was 
in fact controlledby the government (The Nazis did this also).FascIsm 
and its fraternal twin Nazism, died as a potent force when the Axis 
powers fell. 

Or did it? 

I suggest that the doctrines of modem American liberalism con- 
tain an Implicit, elemental brand of Fascism. Furthermore, the 
direction of liberal theory and policy is toward an authoritarian 
corporatlst state, as Invisionedby Fascism. 

The liberal's philosophical zeal for governmental authority, and 
his distrust of the Individual, are reminiscent of the attitudes of the 
Fascist theorists. The Italian Fascist Alfredo Rocco, and Musso- 
lini himself, both claimed that as society becomes more complex 
the Individual's freedom must be restricted and the state must in- 
stitute more rigid controls. How many times do we hear American 
liberals saying the same thing? I've lost count. Robert Theobald 
states, "Modern society will operate only If all of its members are 
willing to compromise that strict insistance on existing rights which 
could lead to an Intolerable situation for all ... the individualism of 
the 18th and 19th centuries is a casualty of technology as are the old 
Ideas of private property." 

Hubert Humphrey once stated that liberalism is eternal experi- 
mentation; with pragmatic standards, and no absolute values, Musso. 
llni, similarly, stated that Fascism had no remote goals and no 
absolute values. The New Deal was oncedeflnedby one of its spokes, 
men as an adaptation of Mussolini's corporatlst ideas, 

Richard S. Wheeler defined the problem concisely: **Power, the 
power lo tell other men how to run their lives, has bewitched and se- 
duced the liberal mind. 


The liberal emphasis on welfarism, and distrust of private en- 
terprise, are reminiscent of the Nazi Party platforms as early as 
1920, and of the state socialism of Otto Von Bismarck in I9th cen- 
tury Prussia. The 1920 Nazi platform stated, for instance, that the 
German government should guarantee economic well-being forevery- 
body, nationalize trusts and share in the profits of industry, enlarge 
state pensions for the aged, guarantee higher education for every 
capable German, and abolish unearned Incomes. Tiie Nazis, like 
BIsmarch, wanted to make people loyal to the state by making them 
dependent on the state. In America today, similarly, we find more 
and more people becoming dependent on the state for their well- 
being; and more and more pressure groups fighting to grab all they 
can from the government. 

Prof, Seymour M, Lipset states In his book Political Man, **the 
social characteristics of the Nazi voters In pre-Hltler Germany and 
Austria resembled those of the liberals more than they did of the 
Conservatives." The compulsory wheat program proposed under the 
Kennedy Administration almost duplicated the corpo rati ve-c artel 
arrangements of the Italian Fascist economy. The liberals have used 
government power to bring about compulsory Social Security, and 
compulsory mhiimun wage laws. (Some noted economists. Including 
Milton Friedman, have pointed out that the current minimum wage 
laws actually aggravate unemployment. Instead of reducing It.) 

The Universal Military Training (or Compulsory National Serv- 
ice) advocated by some liberals smacks of the blatant totalitarian- 
ism that would send shivers up the spine of anyone who loves his 

The slmUarity between liberalism and Fascism is primarily a 
moral one. The basic morality of the liberals is altruism — which 
holds that man exists for the sake of others. Altruism was also the 
moral basis of Fascism and Nazism. And It was practiced to the

6reolous metals, right?) and oents. Bnjoy my work, yes. But pride 
t the BKoluslon of Its soolat oonsequenoes?— oh, Hubrlsl 

Particularly, I would like to address a few words to Bill Kwap* 
Inskl's version of Chrlstlanttyi for today Christianity and Buddhism 
are the only religions which show some possibility of rejoining the 
real, dynamic, agonised world, 

First of all, contemporary Christianity has shown signs of re> 
plaoing mystical belief with existential faith and the realUation of 
self within social contest. Christianity is not the Ghuroh, which Is 
io very easy to attack. And it is my feelliiK Umt Christianity now, 
In the sense which gains my admiration, is less mystloal than a 
capitalism which sees not past the "reality" of monetary exchange 
and visible Produffts, "Products" can be an ugly way to Judge one's 

A Christian, or any eNlstentiallst, does not surrender his values 
to the world. Such thoughts as these do not even make sense to 
hlmi he works In the world Oie cannot escape it) and thus defines 
his existence, And if the existential Christian Is affirming some 
ethereal "value," It must be that love which is within himself 
and exists only In his aotlons. Actions cannot be relevant without 
other humans Ois opposed to "people")j the egoist who attempts 
such a definition with pride only will go insane without at least 
one other human. Kwaplnskl, as the realist rationalist, Is really 
affirming nothing more than the existence of pride as one of the 
MANY possible motlvatlonb for an action* 

Mr. Kwaplnskl, there is no such creature as your "Christianity" 

to advocate humility on the one hand, but not self>esteem, on the 

-•Miwpi -Vou have bean retdlng »ltoMth*r too many pFettlanatennae 

pietists who represent the Ghuron's move out of the world* Try 

Bonhoeffer, Buber, or Tllltoh, tor a change. 

Christianity, where relevant, now sneaks of the agony and sweet- 
ness of a life of tearing passions which we cannot escape, What is 
more, of a life we do not seek to escape. 

And finally, Mr, Kwaplnskl. It Is YOUH kind of Christian think* 
ers, none of which are really alive and sensitive to aoth century 
man Clf there be such), who prefer as man's "moral purpose" 
suffering and collective guilt. Are we not, Christians andnon* 
Christians alike, beyond that? II Is man's existence and humanity 
which birth affirms; his essence you will see only through his ac* 
tlons, and Inactions, 

Man's ego Is not his right, it Is his condition. What Mr. Kwap* 
Inski does with his ego does not concern me until other humans he. 
come Involved. And the mtsinformatlon which appears weekly through 
his column must not go unchallenged. For, In all of his groupings 
and labeUlngs, classifications and trlgger<word Justifications, some. 
things is lacking. We are both on extremely shaky ground if either 
of us choose to ignore or misrepresent Essences of any Individual 
human being, or of any of those shorthand terms we use for schools 
of thought that are the "product" of human beings. 

for It la these Essences, and these only, which hyphenate the 
1-Thou, the, the Quth-Kwaplnski, the Us. 

A ''Felt" Chapel 

How did I feel about chapel on Friday, January 847 Might be better 
to say, did I feel, and the answer is ves, and perhaps that's Ui« 
value. Rationally 1 have probtemi with what seem to be "antl* 
chapels" Juit as I and the rest of my generation have problems 
digesting antUheroes and antUbooks, So the anti*hymn or antl- 
meaning song (quite apart from the fun of It— and it was fun) bugs 
me more than I can say, But this is the value, I am told, and I am 
beginning to catch oni sometimes the accepted pattern of hymnody, 
meant originally to be the means of singing out our faith, has ceased 
to mediate a sense of WOW, And the antlihymn so silly that It la 
profoundly a oartaature of the unmeaning in our usual forms, shakea 
me Into asking all over agalni Why do I sing hymns? 

8o the new forms wouldn't put me to sleep, because 1 never 
knew what was coming next, no more than the perrormers did . be* 
oause they weren't that tightly programmed. How can one program 
a "happening"? And so Iguessthey were illustrating that the medium 
is the message, and that It Is the message largely because perform* 
ers and audiences alike cease to be performers and audiences and 
are swept up together Into a "felt" happenUig. 

Is there power, that Is, effectiveness, In It? Ask me after I get 
over these final stages of the WOW effect, At this point I sense 
that the purpose is not to destroy chapel but to dramallae a hunger 
tor morei more Ood, more man, more community, more revalence, 
more vision of what can be If we want to badly enough. 

Honesty? llils too I felt, I reaiiv don't want Orln to crowd me 
on how much I love him, or under what circumstances I would love 
him more, or at what tlmeB III say It to him In so many words* 
This can get maudlin, obscene, oommonplaoe, or It can be painfull 
beautiful, awesome. I can't stand always talking about It directly* 
Nor am I sure a college shall be more a college, and can only be 
a college at the point when it was love words on its lips or love 
toploi In every olasaroom, The rigorous discipline of history and 
aelenoe are all pre«requlsltea of our actualtifttlon as students who 
win be capable of taking over the guidance and control of the messy 
world about whloh so many of the gultar>strummed ballads wall. 
The guitars seem to say, along with John Outh, Olve me your tired,

the whites (after they realised the gravity of the problem) wasi 
What oan we as whites do? The emotion of the moment allowed many 
whltee to express their desire to do something constructive* 

It Is now January and Martin Luther King and the racial problem 
have been forgotten by almost all those whites. But now Is the time 
tor action* Last week I stated that one aspect of the white prob* 
lem In America Is white Ignorance. One of the best ways to re- 
move white Ignorance Is through the college institution. The col* 
lege has the potential to be an active toroe In the elimination of 
the white problem. Through olassea dealing with all aspects of the 
problem, the college can be a great educatUig force. 

If the white itudents of OLC were not Just caught up In emotion* 
allsm, now Is the time to prove itll SU oourses dealing with such 
topics ai the brown and black oltlien In America and the philosophy 
of racism have been presented tor consideration. If accepted, these 
classes fy/Moti would be taught next quarter) would be the first of 

The Job of the white students on this campus is to show this in* 
■tttutlon that you really want these classes. You should tell every 
fttoulty member you see on campus that you are In favor of these 
oourses* You should also write the Dean and the President of the 
College and urge them to support these olassei* 

l^ere U a way that the white students on oamQus nan show that 
they are truly committed to the solving of me white problem. Show 

that your statements of concern are not Just hollow platitudes*

But he did, he forgave me. 

Today I met a man who freed me to celebrate his humanity. 
This relationship bypassed 
the fires of hate 
and the pain of guilt 
This relationship started 
with a whole man 

who had come to terms with himself 

and could turn and forgive me. (The LORD ihall be between me and

The halls were filled with the 
sounds of ricocheting balls last 
Wednesday evening when Mount- 
clef Inn played host to the first 
Granny Open, a three-hole par 
three golf tournament created for 
men students by rooms 414-416. 
The course ran through the foyer 

and the west wing of the dorml« 

tory living quarters. 

The tournament was complete- 
ly authentic. Indoor P.G.A. rules 
were enforced, although It seems 
that this was the first Indoor golf 
match ever held. At times huge 
galleries of spectators threat- 
ened to overrun the first tee 
and the ever present threat of 
rain was symt>ollzed by Head 
Resident Ed Creason, who threat- 
ened to halt the tournament be- 
cause of the decltKl level In- 

Twenty-two participants paid 
the ten-cent green fee to com- 
pete In the match — **Fat Al" 
Siverson played twice. Real golf 
balls were used, but any type 
of club was permissible since Ted 
"Bamba" Helden used his deadly 
pool cue and executed some fine 
bank shots. 

Ralph Cross and Jeff Newpher 
tied for the victory, with New- 
pher emerging as the sentimen- 
tal victor because of a broken 
hand. Ted Schafersman and Bam- 
ba tied for second, while Lane 
Ongstad and Alan Spies (co-pro- 
moters of the match) tied for 
third place.

ed, but Spies and Ongstad did 
admit that they were of a liquid 
nature. Oh, well, that's better 
than vegetable. Isn't It? An 
awards banquet in the Cafeteria 
was planned too, but later can- 
celled due to the lack of ban- 
quet-typs food. Or maybe I should 
say food, period. 

Tournaments like the Granny 
Open should be promoted more 

often at CLC to edify and cleanse 
the bodies of our students into 
peak physical condition. As every 
Physical Education major knows, 
the mind cannot be considered a 
separate entity from the Irody. 
Thus when we keep our bodies 
In good shape through physical 
activity our minds also pros- 
per and are restored to health.

Cerebral Acne 

by Gerald S. Rey 

If you wake up early 

and find me in a cloud, 

please don't be afraid 'cuz 

I'm free. 

This cloud Is just a symbol 

of the life that I must lead. 

A life where I can feel but Just can't see. 

I know just what this life can be. 

Yes I know that you love me 

and with me it's just the same 

but I can't stand a girl who has another name. 

You have those big brown eyes 

and faces on your knee 

but I know just what's Inside. 

Your life is just a fake 

and you tack reality. 

The last time you were happy you just cried. 

I know Just what this life can be. 

Yes I know that you love me 

and with me It's Just the same 

but I cant stand a girl who has another name. 

Dear Parents 

Thank you for bringing me into this miserable world. 
A world of filth, corruptness and evil. 
Also, thank you for bringing me into this beautiful world. 
A world with God's people, God's work and God's love. 

Time showed me the world, and you, parents. 
You were my constructor. 

You faUed, 

Yellow is black, blue, brown and green. 

Three plus four Is thirty-seven. 

I've grown. 

The world Is at my feet. 

Two can be beat. 


How shallow you are. 
For you have succeeded. 
Not alone, no not at all. 
Only with my mind helping. 

Can't you see? 

Parents, you're not always right. 

Children sense your wrong. 

Peace comes with parting, 

Christ comes with his Impression, 


Bound away, 

Anonymous Is my name.

Singer Songwriters 

In a previous article I discussed the musical movement which 
headed off the white musician's Interest In the blues, and this week 
I will cover a movement which occured simultaneous to the city 
blues revival, and is just as pertinent to the state of today's pop 
music. It was also occurlng during the big "folk music boom" 
of the early sixties. This was the singer- songwriter movement. 

Without a doubt the leading figure In this area Is Bob Dylan. 
I will not attempt to give any kind of biography or historical 
data, for that Is hard to distinguish between fact and legend, and 
it can be found practically anywhere. But I will mention that Dylan's 
success was the breakthrough for bringing a serious approach to 
pop music in terms of lyrical content. 

At this point I must pass Dylan by because Dylan Is just too much 
to handle In an article such as this one. 

The other important names In the movement are Phil Ochs, 
Tom Paxton, Patrick Sky, Brio Anderson and Richard Farina. The 
most important means for publication of these songivrlters has been 
Sing OutI magazine, and the two Broadside magazines (one publish- 
ed In Boston and the other in New York.) 

Phil Ochs Is most noted for his brash and straightforward 
politically oriented songs. (Love Me I'm a Liberal, I Alnt a 
Marchln* Anymore, and Draft-Dodger Rag, are a few.) He would 
probably rank high on an SDS list for their poet -laureate. 

Paxton, Sky and Anderson write topical songs, but are most 
adept at straight lyrical songs with a wider point of vlew{i.e. 
Paxton's Ramblln' Boy, Sky's Many a Mile, and Anderson's 
Come to My Bedside My Darling.) 

Farina was probably the most timely and most Important of all, 
though. He has two albums on Vanguard which he recorded with his 
wife Miml (who Is also Joan Baez* sister), and recently there was 
a re-Issue of some of his earlier work. He also wrote the txwk, 
he died In a motorcycle accident which occured on his way to a 
party celebrating the publication of his book. 

But rather than go any further into these people. 111 go into the 
background to this movement. 

Writing topical songs has always been a major force in American 
Folk Music. Woody Guthrie, probably the most Important person In 
American Folk Music wrote scores of ballads about the Dust Bowl, 
the depression, and other things. 

A big occurance for topical songs In America was the things that 
went on during the labor union drive in the thirties. Joe Hill was the 
PhU Ochs of the IWW Onternatlonal Workers of the World). 

During the civil rights movement of the early sixties, a whole 
storehouse of songs were written from the storehouse of material 
afforded by a history of racism. This gave the songwriters good 
practice, and It brought songwrltlng to a level of popular acceptance, 
for the civil rights movement was at its peak when the folk music 
revival was at Its peak. 

So, today you can turn on your radio and listen to music and 
poetry combined In an art (not always can you hear this, but more 
so than you could five or six years ago.) And these are some of ttie 
people and things that brought It aiwut.

Theology Examined 

— Orln Wise 

A recent religious experience 
has Induced me to consider cer> 
tain theological matters, espe- 
cially the name of God. It has 
been suggested that God's last 
name was probably "Hallowed." 
This theory was complicated by 
the realization that this was more 
likely Ms first name, since one 
usually says, and scripture sup- 
ports, "Hallowed God." But be- 
cause, as the Bible tells us, God 
Is an Infinitely Wise and Simple 
Being, we reasoned He would 
never have confused His public 
by Being ambiguous. After also 
rejecting the theory that His last 
name is "d-mn*' as possibly 
blasphemous and therefore not 
Simple either, we Finally hit 
upon the real last Name. It Is 

Much scholarship has gone Into 
this breakthrough. Mexican an- 
thropologists have Informed us 
that the ancient Greek word for 
God, Theos (Lat., Dues) had an 
equivalent In the New World Az- 
tecan civilization discovered by 
Cortez, God In Aztecan Is Teo, 
also a homonym for the Aztecan 
word meaning '*nose." 

Applying the same scholarly 
methodology In other foreign cI- 
vUIzatlons, our Fresh Air Afri- 
can correspondent, my mother, 
noted a distinctive tribe in which 
the members all have enormous 
noses. Upon belngasked who their 
God was, they replied, "God 

Apparently, their ultimate 

deity is a huge floating nose, 
drifting high up In the heavens. 
Thus their Chief Is the one with 
the largest nose, just as our Pope 
Is the one with the most robes 
and hats. They worship this un- 
usual deity in the primitive man- 
ner of burning palm leaves the 
first rainy Sunday In January, a 
truly barbaric practice. TTiIs 
dense smoke permeates the at- 
mosphere making the people feel 
that the spirit of their deity, 
called the Holy Nose, is every- 

Their Holy Communion Is even 
more exciting because Instead 
of pretending that bread Is God's 
body, they eat their wife's left 
leg, a morsel which they believe 
closer approximates the Body of 
their God. 

In any case, we now know God's 
last name. But the question re- 
mains: Where the h,., did Nose 
get the curious given name, 
"God"? — Perhaps It's a nick-

Rood Signs On Onr Merry-go-ronnd 

—John Guth 

A rare and beautiful thing hap- 
pened a week ago Tuesday. Or 
almost happened, at any rate. 

"Road Signs on a Merry»Go- 
Round," a CBS production, ac- 
companied Nelson Trout onto our 
campus. For most of those In at- 
tendance It was a neat little film, 
startllngly photographed, which 
one could easily place upon that 
shelf where most of our calls 
to noble thought AND actions 
repose quietly, gathering much 

But somehow, I could not get 
this film out of my head. Not 
Just yet, anyhow. Bonhoeffer and 
Buber were alive through their 
words, you see, and the juxta- 
position of their thoughts and 
agonies with ours, and of their 
reality and dreams with ours, 
carried atx)ut it the unmistakable 
call to the action and Involvement 
our world demands. 

Even for myself, who am not 
thelstlc or atheistic, the film 

stands very nearly as an e^gw* 
sltlon of my personal philosophy/ 
life style.Only man's conscience, 
as he walks alone on an abundant 
earth and creates and compen- 
sates for natural lack with his 
scientific processes, will make 
this world livable for all, will 
reach Into the universe for him- 
self. Utopia? Perhaps, but I set- 
tle for nothing less. 

StUl. much of the elation I felt 
at the end of "Road Signs" was 
quickly dissipated by the dis- 
cussion group experience. Why 
should these Christians, to whom 
the film Is ideologically address- 
ed, be having so much troutile 
Identifying a theme, a meaning, 
a reason? How is that possible? 
Are we Uiat unfeeling? 

So "Road Signs" reaffirmed 
earlier thou^ts: that our prot)- 
lems are not exclusively In India 
and Peru, or Schenectady and 
Sacramento, but mainly on our 
own merry-go-round, in Thousand 
Oaks, California, 

I witness: The Student Senate 

Well. well. weU. Bob Dylan is 
Indeed right, "the times they are a- 
changing. " At the lasl Senate meet- 
log, that shriveled Limb of the Student 
Body grew some guts, put some meat 
on Its bleached bones, and doubled 
lis palm Into a fist. So that along 
with the usual boredom which charac- 
teriees the Senate meetings ol the 
past, a new element was to be seen. 
Senators actually got ")acked"aboul 
student Power! 

To give you an account of a few of 
the hlghll^ls: Willie Ware talked a- 
bout the paternalism ol the adminis- 
tration, various pieces of logtslatlon 
which have been or will be Imposed 
upon the students without their know- 
ledge or permission It was a 

great Impromptu speech which got a 
lot of heads in gear. 

Craig McNey pointed out that to 
get things doneonemlghttlndltadvan- 
tageous to "step outside of extstlog 
channels. " There was general con- 
demnation of the treatment which the 
student repreaenlatlvcs received from 
the Educational Policies Commlliee. 

What came out of the meeting as 
I understand it is this: 

1. ) As students, CLC la DUB ed- 
ucation. OUR four years. OUR two 
thousand dollars. Since it molds OUR 
lives, we feel we should have a voice 
in the making of policies. CLC is 

2. ) To bring about needed change 
Uie students need POWER. 

3. ) The only reason for the alow 
rate of change at CLC Is that students 
are afraid to grasp and use the power 
which is rightfully theirs. 

4.) To overcome the fear and 
feelings of Impotency students need to 
make their power felt both within and 
outside of existing channels. 

These four points apply to dress 
standards, faculty committees, dorm 
hours, classroom and social facilities, 
class oRerings; In fact, they apply to 
every area o( life at CLC which con- 
cerns students. To bring about the 
changes we as a group demand, I per- 
sonally advocate using any device, short 
of rebellion or revolution, whiob will 
bring pressure to liear in support of our 

So what do you think? Do you have 
anything to say? If so. why not be at ihe 
next Senate meeting. Monday night, 9:00 
in F-I. But whether or not you can come 
remember that we can do some^lng a - 
bout the pathetic condition of CLC, that 
It Is our education, and lastly that In the 
end. we're the ones who suffer If this 
place Isn't drastically changed sooni 

We have the responBlMllty. the pos- 
sibility, and the power. All wehaveto 
do Is use it.

with grease, stirring until you get a smooth pasta. 

Combine beans, pasta, and ham hocks In large pot and atmmer for

Kingsmen Improve Record 

by Frank Nausin 

It was a long time coming but the Kingsmen have finally won 
three games. With the winning of three games the Kingsmen are 
assured of not having as dismal a record as was seen last year. 
But even more encouraging is the type of ball the Kingsmen have 







been playing as of late, the team 
Is bediming to jell and this could 
spell bad omens for opponents In 
coming games. 

On Monday night the Kings, 
men met a hustling Westmont 
team, at Westmont. The Kings- 
men had spilt In their two pre* 
vlous encounters with Westmont 
and were looking for another 
win here. They were to be denied 
however, by the Westmont team. 
Westmont came out of the locker 
room, like a Vietnam Monsoon, 
and at the half led by a score 
of 45 to 31, having an even 
larger lead of 18 pts. But the 
Kingsmen went to work In the 
second half and cut the lead to 
two pts. with about 2 minutes 
left in the game. But It was 
here that the Kingsmen fell apart 
and fell back to a 6 pt. deficit 
and lost by the count of 73 to 
67. As Coach Campbell said, 
"They seem to fall apart at the 
wrong time." But Coach Camp* 
bell was impressed by the play 
of Knave guards brought up to 
twister the Varsity forces, they 
being, Ralph Lucas, and Steve 
Jasper. The leading scorers for 
the Kingsmen In this ball game 
were Mike Maylleld with 14 pts., 
Clem 12 pts., 'Benson 11 pts. 
and Tim Iverson U pts. 

On Thursday the Kingsmen re- 
turneu home to meet the Ante, 
lopes from Grand Canyon College 
of Arizona. Grand Canyon, who 
had upset U.C. Riverside, and 
Pasadena College on their trlpto 
California, ran Into an aroused 
C.L.C. team.

and began hitting 20 ft. jump

defense of the year forged an

out the first half and led at half 
time 32 to 30. The Kingsmen 
were sparked by Bruce Benson in 
the first half. Bruce pouredhome 
17 first half pts. In the second

a 20 pt. lead. Benson and Iver- 
son seem to be the spark the 
Kingsmen needed, since their 
Infusion Into the starting line- 
up they have picked up much 
of the scoring slack and have 
played good defense. The Scor. 
ers: Iverson 22 pts., Benson

score 85 to 74.

the needed scoring punch which 
was lacking at the guard spot In 
the past. Benson's driving layups

Int'l B-Ball Game 

On Campus 

by Frank Nausin 

Big time basketball has finally made it to CLC. Next Monday night 
in the CLC gym, at 7:30 p.m., a star studded cast of players will do 
battle in an effort to raise funds for the International Organizations 
class trip to the United Nations in New York. 

Just who is this star studded 

cast you say? Well, it is none 
other than the migh^, the mus- 
cular, and after the game, sore 
faculty. Against this awesome 
opponent the students will pit 
the scoring genius of the In- 
tramural all-stars. Quite a game 
you say? Well listen to this: 
for the faculty we have Dr. Kal» 
las, Mr, Barnes, Mr, Caldwell, 
Mr. Creason, Dr. Glmnestad, 
Mr. Hunt, Dr. Maxwell, Mr. Mur- 
ley, Coaches Nelson and Shoup, 
Dr. Saez, Mr. Sladek, Mr. Stan- 
ford, Dr. Swenson, Mr, Taggert, 
Mr, Wiley. Mr. Wolf. Coach ETng. 
dahl and to add a feminine touch 
to tJie game. Miss Atnundson 
linii MiiiMw VnHiriin, and there 
may be more to add. Dr. Tseng, 
our able coordinator tells me 
the reason for such a large con. 
tingent is that he does not feel 
that the faculty players will last 
more than a minute and a half 
at any one time. 

Facing the faculty Is the In« 
tramural all-stars, which have 
not heen officially picked as of 
yet, but win be a formidable 
opponent. An Interesting note 
here Is that the CLC student 
lx)dy win be lead in their cheers 
by the CLC cheerleaders, but 
the faculty will also have cheer* 
leaders, one of them being Dr. 
Cooper. Also, a new twist will 
be added when Dean Hall takes 
the floor, whistle In hand to call 
fouls against the unsuspecting 
stars. One can only hope she Is 
better than the referees in last 
Friday's game. 

Now that you are all excited 
about this once in a life time 
opportunity, you want to know 
where to get tickets. Tickets 
may be purchased in the Book 
Store, or from any member of 
the International Organizations 
class. The price is only 50 cents 
for an evening of basketball ex- 
cellence and excitement or come 
see your favorite faculty mem- 
ber In action, but what ever you 
do come. Get your tickets as soon 
as possible before they sell out, 
because pre-game attendance fig- 
ures predict a sellout overflow 
crowd. Incidentally, you might 
wonder at this point Just why 
It Is called an International Bas- 
ketball game. Well many of the 
faculty members are going to 
represent the respective coun-

Dr. Leake y 

No Monkey Business 

by Ann Meierdierks 
"If I choose to believe in evo- 
lution instead (of God) and find too 
late, I'm wrong — ILOSE EVERY 
THING!" This is the summation 
of the pamphlet handed out at the 
door to those attending the lee 
ture by Dr. L.S.B. Leakey at 
Moorpark College last Saturday. 
Dr. Leakey, an archaeologist and 
anthropologist who spent forty 
years In Tanzania searching for 
evidence for the origin of maji, 
responded that such "misinform- 
ed, unknowledgeable" people are 
those who create the misery of 
today by causing people to "leave 
God and faith" as there Is no 
"conflict" between evolution and 
the Bible, if it Is read properly. 

Through a series of slides and 
comments about them Dr, Leakey 
proceeded to trace the evolution 
of man. His theory of man's evo- 
lution over twenty million years 
was based upon the observations 
made of fossils of teeth, jaw- 
bones, skull shapes, and the dat- 
ing procedure Involved, Accord- 
ing to Dr, Leakey, psycho-soclal 
man developed twenty-five to fifty 
thousand years ago with the dis- 
covery of fire which allowed him 
to have leisure time to develop 
art. As a result of his findings, 
a new definition of 'man' has been 
presented and for many an eager- 
ness tor more on Uils topic. 

To learn more of the great Dr, 
Leakey and your ancestors look 
for his forthcoming book, **Un- 
velHng Man's Origin," 




Dear Sir: 

1 am a Junior at the Univer- 
sity of Houston and also one of 
several hundred thousand college 
students who hold an Airline 
Youth Fare Card. 

I am writing you and many oth- 
er college newspaper editors In 
the hope that fellow students may 
be alerted throu^ the editorial 
column of their newspaper about 
the recent happenings concerning 
youth Cares, Several days ago a 
Civil Aeronautics Board exam- 
iner ruled that "youth fares 
should be dropped." 


I don't think that many students 
know of this and I urge them to 
rise to protect their youth fares. 
Most of us have limited budgets 
and receive our spending money 
from part-time Jobs. I URGE 
BOARD, 1825 Connecticut Avenue 
N.W., Washington, D.C., 20009 
and voice their protest against 
this unfair decision against youth 
fares. It is important that this 
be done within the next 30 days 
so that a new hearing will be 
set, otherwise the ruling will 
automatically become law, 

I am told that Western Union 
has a new opinion telegram and 
for 90 cents, which can be charged 
to a student's telephone, a 15 
word telegram could be sent 
from anywhere In the U.S. to 
your own congressman, the Pres- 
ident and Vice-President, If a 
student doesn't havetlmetowrlte 
his opinion, I recommend that he 
call his nearest Western Union 
office and send the wire. 

Sincerely yours,

Pinkney Elected 
New ASB Veep 

In a record vote the students 
of California Lutheran College 
elected Tim Pinkney to fill the 
vacancy left by retiring Vice 
President Ralph Soderberg. As 
Vice President Tim will serve 
as President of the ASB Senate 
and member to College Council 
which is an advisory committee 
to the President of the College. 
He will also be Involved quite 
closely in the new surge for stu- 
dent power which is being pro- 
moted by student government. 

"Tim has brought an excite- 
ment to the office which was 
not there before," says ASB 
President Willie Ware. "If he 
maintains his enthusiasm, he 
could transform the Senate from 
a group of students bogged down 
with codes and procedures to a 
powerful voice speaking out on 
such Issues as: Student represen- 
tatlon on Faculty Committees 
with full voice and vote; The tle- 
ing up of funds needed to im- 
prove this campus lor future 
development on the North Cam- 

After graduation from South 
High School, Torrence, Califor- 
nia, Tim came to CLC to begin 
his dual majors of Speech and 
Sociology. He participates in 
wrestling and track. He has made 
the Dean's List lor the last two 
quarters and has an overall GPA 
of 3.0. He has held the offices of 
So'?^omo^o Clas?- Vice Prssl'iTit 
and Junior Class President and 
Senator before being elected to 
the ASB Vice Presidency, 

Dr, Hagen A.K. Staak gave an 
Interesting, Informative, and 
often humorous series of three 
lectures at California Lutheran 
College January 30-31. Thursday 
night he spoke in the Little Thea- 
tre about the Dead Sea Scrolls 
and other original Hebrew li- 
terature and their application to 
modern Christianity. Friday 
morning Dr. Staak related his 
experiences as an official Pro- 
testant observer at the Vatican 
n Ecumenical Council to a rather 
large crowd at the Presidents 

In his Thursday night address, 
Staak, who has a list of creden- 
tials and accomplishments a mile 
long, stated that in his opinion the 
Dead Sea Scrolls themselves gave 
little important information. He 
went on to say that the best source 
of realistic historical Biblical 
Information Is In the original 
Hebrew sources such as the Tal- 
mud. In suggesting that the Old 
Testament contains quite a blTof 
unjustified hero-worship. Dr. 
Staak added that "basic Christian 
statements must be rooted In the 
Judaic Talmud tradition or they 
become false." 

Staak placed emphasis on his 
point that In order to success- 
fully communicate the history of 
Christianity to the world wemust 
use the modern media of televi- 
sion and film to extrapolate on 
the data of modern Hebrew arch- 
eology. He then added that In the 
last thirty years Archeology has 
done more to illuminate the Bible 
than in the entire history before 
that time. 

Friday morning at the Presi- 
dent's Convocation Staak gave 
some interesting anecdotes gain- 
ed from his visit to the Vatican 
II, Although he called the theo- 
logy of the late Pope John xxm 
a *'hodge-podge," he went on to 
reveal many Inside stories about 
the late Pope — stories demon- 
strating that the Pope was in- 
deed a great, humble, andhumor- 
ous man who was very concerned 
about the growing lack of com- 
munication between the catholic 
and non-catholic worlds. Appar- 
ently someofthe decisions reach- 
ed by the Vatican II were actually 
suggested by the non-catholic ob- 
servers, who were asked to ex- 
press themselves by the Pope, 

In closing Dr. Staak statedthat 
the real modern Reformation is 
In the Roman Catholic Church, 
and that modern Protestant theo- 
logy tends to be a little stag- 

A very Interesting series of 
lectures Indeed. 


It should be noted that the artl.

Why are Senators reslfenlngand 
students becoming more discon- 
tent with student government? 
This Is a question that Is too 
large tor me to fully answer in 
this article but It Is a reality 
that must soon be dealt with on 
this campus. 

Is Senate supposed to be a 
philosophical debating society? 
Currently that seems to be the 
road that it Is taking. By accident 
I received a copy of the Senate 
agenda with "discussion of Gun 
control,** listed on it. I ds later 
Informed that this was not the 
first time this subject had ap- 
peared there, as well as such 
issues as the Vietnam war, I am 
sure that you will agree that 
these are most pertinent discus- 
slons but I believe that there 
are far more Important issues to 
be considered by the Senate of 
C.L.C, than these. Our student 
body is groping for Its Identity 
and It seems to me that It should 
be Senate*s responsibility to be 
defining It. Senate needs to say 
if we: need a full-time CUB 
director; Should make Improve- 
ments on this campus or head 
full steam to the North Campus; 
should junk the idea of a Coffee 
House on campus because we have 
run Into some unseen difficulties. 
TTiere are many other Issues 
where they should take a stand, 

I have prided myself on being 
a student who tried to keep up 
with what was happening or going 
to happen on this campus. Today 
I was talking to one of the Sena- 
tors and out of curiosity I began 
to ask htm about some of the 
stories that I had heard. Well, 
It turned out that I was filling 
blm in on the latest happenings. 
No wonder he was dissatisfied 
with Senate. 

I have heard the statement 
that Senate Is a dead body. I 
think It Is. It does produce reams 
of mimeographed words, In Its 
notes, bills, and resolutions, but 
they are words that aren't back- 
ed up with actions. Senate thinks 
that after It has passed a piece 
of legislation Its Job is done 
and leaves it up to some other 
"power" to carry out Its wishes, 
I maintain that this Is the atti- 
tude that killed Senate. I be- 
lieve that Senate must be a place 
where action must take place. 
Shouldn't Senate be the place, 
as our representative legisla- 
ture, where decisions would be 
made such as: should the "cof- 
fee house" Idea be Junked or 
carried through; should the stu- 
dents have a veto over who our 
next CUB director Is; or should 
this publlcatlon*s name be chang- 
ed. Let me caution here that if 
Senate should decide on any of 
these issues It must take the 
responsibility of carrying it 
through to completion, Willie 
Ware, A.S.B. president, cannot 
do everything himself. Senate 
acting body. It will then come 
losophical body to a doing or 
actlnb body. It will then come 
alive, and Senators won't resign 
and the general discontent with 
Senate, of Senators as well as 
everyone else, will subside,

The Gospel According To St. Guth 

When John Guth first hit Broadway with his "Sedition" column 
(most of which has been dedicated to defending Guthian ortliodoxies 
against the onslaught of Kwaplnsklan heresies) he stated, amongst 
other things, that ho enjoyed reading my writing. (1 was somewhat 
surprised that he managed to fit that In, between all the other things 
that he stated.) 

I didn't quite know how to react to having John Guth (THE John 
Guth) as such a dedicated reader. As Al Capp would say, It*s about 
like waking up one morning and finding out that Adolf Elchman was 
your uncle. 

In any case, I usually don*t pay a heck of a lot of attention to 
what John Guth says — because, to be perfectly honest, I don*t 
care two hoots In Hades about It, o""- way or the other. And that, 
my friend. Is the Guth, the whole ^uth, and nothing but the Guth, 
pure and simple. 

Just Another 

Ode To Freedom 

The worthless fate of man 
Is trying to live with men 
who live with fear yet spite, 
possess and show their might 

To claim they have "freedom In life." 

lliis man awakens to the day 

and steps out In hope, vitality, but dismay; 

he speaks out as to say 

"Respect my qualities — you ass" 
While he cuts me down with his ax. 

And then this man asks of me 

Why can't you respect my quest 
In freedom with a society of rtien; 
And so I say to him at best, 

"Look UP and SEE my friend" 
That freedom Is not respect 
When maintained by: Destruction, 

And My Neck.

Humanism, Individualism 

Mr, Kwapinski writes an Interesting column; I refer specifically 
to "Liberal Facism/' His comments appear plausible until one 
realizes that he Is speaking from an Intellectual and historical 
vacuum, Kwapinskl's article rests on the mistaken notion of the 
nature of the modern United States government. I, too, have a marked 
distrust of our government, but for drastically different reasons. 

The system under which this country operates Is overwhelmingly 
capitalistic. G. William Domhoff, in Who Rules America, presents 
sufficient evidence to convince even the most skeptical reader 
that a few families of tremendous wealth control both the govern- 
ment and economy of the U.S. These people are by no means 
"liberals," whatever a liberal Is, but are Just such people as Kwa- 
pinski admires and attempts to emulate in his columns. Every 
move they make is based on greed, i.e., all is calculated to pro- 
duce more money, and consequently more power, 

TTie current movement to give government more and more power 
is a mistaken one, because under our system, power Is thus taken 
away from the people. The motivation behind the liberal philosophy 
Is, however,asoundone: left to themselves, a few people will tyranize 
the majority. An examination of history will clearly show the re- 
sults of unrestrained hidlvidualism; ask the Black man, any Black 

Or ask the white middle class American, who is so completely 
controlled by the Interests of the business community that he can't 
free himself from the never ending pursuit of material goods. It 
Is no accident that our society has degenerated to worship of ob. 
jects; the great object makers wished it so and made it happen. Few 
people will oppose this condition, because the thought oi losing their 
hard earned objects is too painful to consider. We allow ourselves 
to be perverted because we have been so totally dehumanized things 
are now more important than people. 

I will grant the premise that man does exist only for others, 
but Individualism means nothing If all other individuals are not 
loved and respected. Mr, Kwaplnski's grossly egoistic creed bene- 
fits no one but those with wealth and power; as long as people 
continue In their self-absorptlon, there is no danger that we will 
look around and die of shame. The problem before us is as old as 
our constitution: what Is primary, property rights or human rights. 
If you deny another's humanity, you leave yourself open for re. 
clprocal treatment — a thought no true Individualist could endure. 
The only hope In a dehumanlzhig social and economic system is to 
aid and encourage all who will assert their humanity, because 
one man alone Is easy prey to the thorough system of control and 
persuasion existent at present. 

The white community too easUy feels relief when they compare 
their fate to that of the black Americans; I feel envy. The oppres- 
slon In the ghetto Is different from that in suburbia only in degree, 
not In kind. The increased effort to keep Black people down forces 
a more ready appraisal of our system and Its effects on men. One 
person drives a Ford, and another a Plymouth — you don't really 
believe they have expressed their distinctness as individuals? 

We have sold our Individuality, our humanity, for an arsenal 
of damn gadgets. For comfort and security we have denied our 
freedom. We must begin to see ourselves In the Black community. 
A Black man demands freedom, someone offers him a house; it's

Living Legend 

In a business that moves as quickly as the record industry 
there are very few phenomenons that last long enough to Ik called 

One of the exceptions to this Is the Oldies But Goodies series, 
produced by an enterprising Los Angeles DJ named Art Laboe. 

Laboe was starring In a rock-n-roll radio show that emanated 
from a Hollywood teenage hangout In the early days of rock 
music. At that time the new Big Beat was revolutionary enough, 
but the thought of doing a live show and actually Interviewing the 
kids on the air was unheard of. (This was In the days before five- 
second delay tape, which led to some very colorful moments) 
Mr. Laboe made the show possible by building a radio transmitter 
into the trunk of his car and stringing miles of wire around the 

One of the most popular features of the show was the special 
request spot, and Laboe noticed that the most popular records were 
those songs that had been popular, but were no longer played on 
ordinary radio shows. 

A light flashed In the back of Art's mind, and Oldies But Goodies 
were born. 

The release of the Oldie albums have become an annual event. 
This year the ninth volume has been released. (OSR 8859) 
_ It features sqch numer one hits as •'Runaway" by Del Shannon, 
^■Llar, Liar" by the Castaways, "Turn on Your Lovellghf'by 
Bobby Bland. 

Oldies But Goodies have become a memorial to the art of mer- 
chandlsing memories. 

Fish Tole 

Once upon a time not long ago, a nunch of musicians in Los 
Angeles decided that their sounds went together so swimmingly 
that they would pool their resources into a new group. 

*Sut what will we call It?" 

The group waited with baited breath. 

"Holy Mackeral," muttered Paul Williams their leader. 

"Not bad!" 

"Reel good, In fact," said Mike Cannon, bassist, 

*1 think It's klnda catchy," returned Jeremiah Scheff, the 

"Di fact, I'm hooked on It," said George Hiller, guitarist. 

And so the Holy Mackerel ^vas spawned. 

The Holy Mackerel, featuring songs by Paul Williams, who 
started out writing songs for Tiny Tim, Is not half bad as groups 
go. In &ct you might say it rates pretty high up the musical scales

Todoy's Mvsic 


In an article in last week's 
ECHO (Vol 8, No. 12), Bill Carl- 
sen hit on the biggest problem In 
Music Education today. How does 
the music educator treat today's 
music? One of the arguments 
against the so-called "rock" mu. 
sic is that it Is constantly chang- 
ing and hardly usable in the in- 
strumental music classroom. 
Before Elvis Presley, guitars 
were not even used In pop music, 
and after a few short years their 
place was taken ovef by their 
electric counterparts. Recent 
movements have extolled the vir- 
tues of the sitar and other non- 
western string instruments. High 
school music educators find it 
difficult to arrange their budgets 
around today's fads which have 
no guarantee of permanence. 

Bill stated that "electrified 
screams" are the sounds that 
have meaning in today's life. Un- 
fortunately, he probably doesn't 
know howcorrecthels.Buthehas 
done what every good musician 
shouldn't: he has limited himself 
to one form of music to the expul- 
sion of others. As he glorifies 
the contemporary sounds of to- 
day's pop groups, he neglects, 
no doubt from unfamillarity, the 
pioneers in electronic music, 
computer music, and other such 
experimental forms. Bill haspro- 
bably never heardofStockhausen, 
Boulez, Varese or Nllsson, men 
who are laying the foundations for 
a new concept ofmusfc which will 
become a part of every man's 
world. Bill doesn't know about 
these people because he is too 
Immersed in today's popular 
music, rather than in the con. 
cepts behind It. 

BUI accuses the schools of not 
telling him **where to find his 
roots," I ask, how long has it 
been since he bothered to look 

ISfillagp Sriar 


PHONE 495-BI 19 

into this? At this school there 
is a course called History and 
Literature of Music. Granted, It 
takes 2V2 quarters to get to con- 
temporary music, but the whole 
last half of the third quarter 
is spent on the music of today's 
world. There is also a class 
called Contemporary Harmony, 
Obviously, this is not a study in 

Bill asked, "Will they even 
allow the meanings of his (the lost 
musician's) own music?" Musi- 
clans have been searching for 
meaning for more than 15,000 
years, but meaning In music is 
an entirely personal thing. A 
piece of music can mean anything 
to anyone. Right here on this cam- 
pus Is a man who rebelled against 
the Idea that one person can Judge 
another's music. Mr, Cope owns 
a publishing company that pub- 
lishes and tries to record prac- 
tically anything sent to him. I 
wonder, Bill, if you knowthlsand 
have ever bothered asking any- 
one where you could get your own 
music published. 

No glee in the glee club? It's 
a nice rhetorical statement, Bill, 
but has no basis In fact. It is 
the mark of a narrow-minded 
person who cannot enjoy his heri- 
tage because he is so hung up In 
the present. 

Finally, Bill implores, **an art. 
1st in love with music stands 
alone, crying, 'I want to learn." 
I submit that Bill shouldn't be 
standing alone, he should escape 
from his escapism and take 
advantage of the opportunities 
that are present.

Dear Sir, 

It has come to my attention tliat 
the entire Coffee Shop and its 
facilities were closed to all stu- 
dents Thursday, January 30, at 
7 p.m. because of what is adver* 
tlsed as a YMCA banquet. I have 
the greatest respect and admlra. 
tlon for groups like the YMCA, 
and I realize that their purpose 
Is a Christian purpose. But why 
our Cafeteria? WTiy must stu. 
dents be denied the access to their 
own Coffee Shop — the only place 
on campus where food, coffee, 
ajid rap interact — because of a 
g:^up which Is In no way affilia- 
ted with the campus? Heaven 
knows the CUB Is not the answer, 

I don't especially dig being re- 
ferred to as "one of those guys 

who is against everything," but 
I must draw my line somewhere. 
If the U.S. gpvemment can use 
the "kUl it before it spreads" 
domlnoe concept In South Vietnam 
then there Is no reason why it 
cannot also be applied in this spe* 
clflc example of admittedly minor 
revocation of freedom. Therefore 
I will be in the Coffee Shop at 

7 p.m. with my books andwlll re- 
fuse to leave if asked. Will you 
join me in a couple of hours of 
quiet study?

SCTA Aware? 

To the Editor: 

I read with Interest last week 
(Jan. 24) that the SCTA (en 
masse?) had condemned Uie 
teacher's strike at San Francis- 
co and other state colleges. 

As one of many students who 
often wonder about such things, 
I am now wondering whether or 
not OUR SCTA chapter, which 
is part of that mlnl-monolith of 
LuUieran higher education nest- 
led in the hills of the Conejo, 
even knew about this action. What 
is more Interesting, do the mem- 
bers, or any other CLC student, 
know what Issues are Involved 

Would somebody who knows 
what is going on kindly inform 
me (and the rest of CLC) on 
this? I would appreciate It very 
much. Thank you.

On Student Power 

by Willie Ware 

"We the students of Crllfomla 
Lutheran College hereby declare 
, . . ." What Is wrong with this 
phrase? Give up? It Is a declara- 
tion by students and does not In- 
dude the faculty or the adminis- 
tration as party to the declara- 

For so long we have depended 
on the administration to empower 
us to decide. This Is now change 
Ing. In an attempt to radicalize 
the campus, your student govern- 
mental leaders are embr ;Ingthe 
philosophy that we should be cog- 
nizant of student power and use It 
for our benefit. 

For example, the SUsystemIsi 
presently under review. It Is 
the responsibility of each stu. 
dent to Inform himself of how 
the present system works, how 

B . Prexy 

other systems work and the bene- 
fits and detriments of each. You 
can do this simply by readlngthe 
Echo and hand^Duts in the next 
several weeks. Most Importantly 
of all, it is your responsibility 
to attend an open meeting of the 
Faculty's Educational Policies 
Committee on Wednesday, F^. 
ruary 19, 1969 at 9:30 a.m. when 
the matter of Pass'Fall courses 
will be discussed. Bring ques- 
tions such as: Why not Pass/ 
Fall In core requirements such 
as Foreign Language? Is the 
grade still a factor in the present 
system? Should extra pass fall 
courses beyond the normal lead 
be allowed? 

You should be there. Decisions 
which will be made may affect 
your G.P.A,

Diary Of A 

by Gerald S. Rea 

Last Monday night I happened 
to notice a sign in the cafeteria 
stating that the coffee shop would 
be closed at 7 p.m. on the fol. 
lowing Thursday to all students 
because of a "YMCA special 
banquet." Immediately a ques- 
tion of priority popped Into my 
head. Should the coffee shop be 
closed to students because of an 
off-campus group having a ban. 
quet downstairs? I really couldn't 
see why, so I decided to stick my 
neck out a little for what 1 con. 
sldered to be the best Interests 
of the student body. 

I sent a Letter to the Editor 
to Lansing Hawkins expressing 
my concern and objecting to the 
closing of the coffee shop and 
expected It to be published with 
the Echo Thursday at dinner. The 
purpose of the letter was to in- 

fbrm you all of my plans not to 
leave the coffee shop when asked 
and to Invite you all to partic- 
ipate In a quite demonstration 
of discontent If you so desired 
wot a Make-In.) As It turned out, 
the letter was not published and 
the only people who knew about 
my plans were the few people 
I had told during the week. 

That "niursday afternoon I vis- 
ited Dean Gangsei and told him 
quite sheepishly of my plans and 
asked If tlie administration could 
either move the banquet to an- 
other building, open the coffee 
shop, or begin a new policy to- 
wards off-campus use of the cof. 
fee shop. I suggested that the 
coffee shop should not be closed 
to students during normal operat- 
ing hours for use by an offK^am- 
pus group without expressed con. 
sent of the ASB or Senate. I 
certainly didn't expect Dean 
Gangsei to approve of my ac- 
tions, but I was dissappolnted 
with his response. I received 
what can only be described as 
a sermon for the next twenty 
minutes, during which I remained 
completely quiet, feeling as 
though an objection from my lips 
would be synonymous with blas- 
phemy in the highest sense. I'm 
really beginning to wonder if 
there Is a sort of Hlppocratlcal 
Oath among the clergy allowing 
only sacred advice to even sec- 
ular problems. Perhaps a separ. 
ation of the vital offices of Chap- 
lain and Dean of Students Is 

What happened that night can 
only be described as the biggest, 
saddest laugh I have ever had. 
At 7 p.m. approximately thirty 
students upstairs refused to 
leave. When Dean Gangsei was 
called by telephone to Inform 
me that we were breaking Pres. 
Ident Olson's ruling, I told the 
other people and then only el^t 
of us were left. We were asked 
to sign our names to a piece 
of paper so we did. We were 
told by one of the cafeteria per- 
sonnel that we were a security 
risk to the food upstairs and 
had better leave. Next came a 
discussion on who the real Chris- 
tians were. Then we were told 
that we would disturb the YMCA 
banquet, to which I replied that 
we would be completely quiet 
and orderly. It just so happens 
that during the entire fracas the 
coffee shop doors were left un- 
locked, allowing many a student 
to come in and use the phone, 
check out the scene, etc. Also 
the YMCA banquet was com. 
prised mainly of people walking 
around downstairs making more 
noise than eighty CLC kids doing 
the Gator on Friday night. In- 
consistencies galore. 

The resuitmg visit to "the 
Dean's office on Friday caused 
many more personal gripes that 
I'd better not put in the Echo. 
I had a transient thought about 
sending around a petition, etc,, 
but decided It would be an over- 
play of an admittedly minor is. 

Let me say a few things in 
closing. First, I admonish those 
In charge not to schedule another 
similar function In the cafeteria 
without informing the ASB or 
Senate and expecting problems. 
Second, I thank those students 
who stayed after the Declara.

realize that I have stepped on 
the toes of a man whom I re- 
spect highly and therefore urge 
him to reply In the Echo and 
state his position on the matter 
if he wishes. Fourth, I have 
kept many of what I consider to 
be relevant facts out of the artic- 
le to preserve brevity, so I ask 
any Interested people to talk to 
me about them.

To Those Of You 

Uiioi Bookstoro*- 
Tht Beat Goes Oi 

by Ron Conner 

Three years ago, Jack Mus- 
chell, a freshman here at CLC, 
felt homesick. But he had a 
dream. He had played lead guitar 
In a band for two years before 
coming here and he missed per. 
forming. He began to Inquire to 
see If anyone else was Interested 
In forming a group. Two weeks 
later the After Ours was born, 
consisting of Jack Muschell, lead 
guitarist and vocalist; Jerry Rea, 

Who Think I'm A'talking To You 

You know, I got lonely eyes for some of the things I used to have 
with a lot of people I still know. I look out and realize I can only 
say what I feel, not what I think or want but how I am emotionally 
responding to you. I feel I'm a lot further away from ya than I was 
at the beginning of this whole thing — like an old man returning 
from a lonely childhood, surprized and saddened by the moments of his 
changed head. I feel like an outside friend, a jock or a godsquad who 
happens to have or be In, but always with a twinkle of your eye, 
or hedgy drawbacks that I can't get inside of. 

But maybe Its true that you can't be a hippy and still work 
hard on something. But also I can't just say "peace — love" and 
shine everything on from there. My bag hasn't really changed — 
it's just sort of become real. Things we used to talk about that we 
thought would be are suddenly there and moving. Out of a thousand 
would-be-outasites we got maybe a few of the good ones going. The 
gripes aren't Just being griped and the potentials just aren't poten- 
tial. And Its also becoming that the straights aren't really the 
straights, and those that watch on don't dig being straight. But the 
would-be-outa sites are much more real and a lot less would-be- 
to whose that are doing the things. And they're the things that any- 
body can do. Whose been having the pipe dreams and whose been 
doing the things that need more than dreaming about? 

Footnote: A petition was circulated for the New Left Class. We 
all dug It and signed. The meeting was called on a Wednesday 
morning and a lot of good things happened. Straight Senior Senator 
Craig McNey let us know how bad he felt that the Administration 
was playing parent and how much he wanted to see the whole 
school together to work against that and for an education. Com- 
mittees formed and Ideas began to move. 

Now this could be the core of a change for the whole campus. 
But that, right now Is still just another But then 
the people realize the possibilities all they gotta do is work. Get 
to the places and find out what ways it'll work. And this isn't poll- 
tics, or games with the administration or keeping up with the state 
colleges, this Is life. If you want to call It student life, ok, but its 
life. Everyone on the campus has felt the pains of the hollow nothing- 
ness that so often pervades. Show me a person on campus who 
hasn't been frustrated as a direct cause of something that hung 
him up at CLC, and 1*11 show you someone who's never ever had a 
would-be^utasite concerning the campus. We're all a part of It, 
No matter what we think of the administration or of rules or morals 
or of each other, we're a part of It. 

So, still feeling kind of away from you, howsabouts us getting 
together? There's nothing you can do that can't be done, etc,, all 
you need is love, love, peace,

vocalist; Terry Bersteln, rhythm 
guitar; Rod Aszman on drums; 
and Richard Slverson on bass. 
They played here frequently and 
were well-received. 

Last year the band took on a 
new look. Terry quit as a re- 
suit of his draft status and 
Richard left to play In another 
band. Using good old American 
Ingenuity, the band improvised 
and trimmed Itself to four mem- 
bers, Jerry, now playing guitar 
and a new addition, Wolf Muser, 
on the bass. 

This was the birth of the Union 
Bookstore and the beginning of 
the realization of Jack's dream. 
This story of the band may seem 
to have little significance but 
really, for those who think this 
is a "dead" campus it Is really 
quite Important. This Friday 
night, the Bookstore plans to in- 
volve the students here in an en- 
vironment of total sound and let 
me assure you, they are fantas- 
tic. The group has matured to 
the point where they have re- 
corded a record but as yet It 
remains unreleased. But I'm sure 
that If they continue to Improve, 
we may see a band that was bom 
here make It big. 

Some of you may not know it 
or you may have your doubts 
as to what I have said. For you 
people, I Invite you to attend the 
dance Friday and find out for 
yourselves if what I have said 
is not true. But I warn you, be 
prepared. You may even want to 
do it in the road before you go, 
It will be worth it.

For a numter of weeks my mind has been grappling with the 
concepts of humanism and Individualism. In these United States the 
individual Is placed, gold platted, on a flawless marble pedestal, 
while the human being is relegated to the obscurity of some Idealist's 

Individualism Is supposed to be at the heart of our "democratic" 
system, but. If you look closely you will find It painted green and 
stuffed In the back pocket of the "All American" citizen. Individualism 
Is also the guise of the racist who votes against open housing, it Is 
the individualists like George Wallace who after losing his first 
attempt at the governor's seat of Alabama gave as one of the chief 
reasons for his defeat the fact that his opposition had "out Nlggered" 
him. Individualism as we know it in the United States Is a clever 
way of hiding our failures. 

The Humanist (who Is more often than not Ignored because he 
is considered as an Idealist) has a difficult but not impossible task. 
While the individualist uses his Individualism as a shield the human- 
ist does not. The humanist exposes the problems of his society. He 
sees such problems as racism and poverty as human problems. 
After the humanist realizes the problem he attempts to do some- 
thing about It. 

It is the white Individualist in America who has held the human 
black man down. The White Individualist read about the church bomb. 
Ings in the South, he also passed the ghetto on his way to some, 
where, but his Individualism shielded him from the reality that 
children were killed in the churches or that the ghetto Is a closed 
society from which only few escape. 

It would be a gross oversight not to realize the Importance 
individualism has played In our capitalistic form of economy. 
Capitalism and individualism have allowed our country to be- 
come the wealthest in the world, but what should be realized at 
this point Is that the individualism which made us materially 
wealthy has also made us morally poor. What Is needed is a re- 
conciliation between material progress and social improvement. 
This can be done by using humanism as a guide not individualism. 
We must use the humanistic concept of Introspection Instead of the 
false shielding of individualism. 

Individualism can no longer be tolerated If we are going to pro- 
gress as one nation. Humanism Is the key to the future.

Exit Wagner 

Forcibly, Stage Left 

Well, comrades, I've been locked up across the street for sev- 
' eral years now, but I can no longer remain silent. This beloved 
institution of ours has one redeeming quality that should never be 
underestimated, viz., It can be ignored. 

Think of it, no matter how inane, repulsive or ridiculous It 
becomes, one may simply shut it out at will. Alas, It has, like 
all mortal entitles, a &ital flaw. 

Yes, a flaw. The bane of every pursuit for knowledge is the 
instructor. He Is our flaw; but, caution, never let It be said that 
I generalize. No, I hasten to add that there are at least tour good 
Instructors. There, are you satisfied? For the moment, let us 
not concern ourselves with quality, but merely acknowledge Its 
rarity* Enou^ praise, we've work to do. 

My concern is with a specific type of professor, one almost as 
rare as the good variety. I will admit to you privately, reader, I 
have a certain Individual In mind. But I am informed that personal 
attacks are too effective, so I will merely say that he belongs to 
the genus Wagner, and let him henceforth be known as Wagner. 

Now, this Wagner is an evil fellow; dont be fooled by his Im- 
potent appearance, for It is his impotence that is so devastating. 
He feels nothing, sees nothing, but knows much. Confront him 
with poetry, and he will make It verse; place philosophy before him, 
and It disintegrates Into dogma; speak to him of forces, and he re- 
plies with dates. 

Obscene tests, sterile lectures, tenure. Let impotence be crowned 
lord of May Day. Let fruitful thought be smothered In obscurity; 
purge the library of sublimity and stock it with Monarch notes and 
other aids, to meaningless mastery. Dominate your material, con-- 
trol It, reduce it| Sterilty passes for reason and tenure becomes 

I really must settle down to propose a destructive program, but 
that outburst certainly did my soul good. Now, what are we to do 
about Wagner? It's alright If I say we? I mean, you people are with 
me in my heroic effort to eliminate the nuisance from our Intel* 
lectual haven? If I'm the only one Wagner has driven out from 
under his rock, there's no hope. Really, can't you Just imagine 
me attacking such a venerable Institution as Impotency all alone? 
It's frl^tenlng. 

I've had several brilliant Ideas for removing this menace. One 
day I considered throwing my book through the window during class 
—just to let some fresh air in. My courage failed. Then again, 
one might convince all students to wear shades to such classes, 
to prevent your vision from being perverted. . . I have it! Every- 
one will refuse to pass any examination administrated by Wag- 
ner: DO organization, no plot. Just simple, pure, beautiful, ex- 
hilarating anarchy. I'm serious now, what the hell is the man to 
do If no one will take his silly tests? 

Curtis J. Smith 

Why Should Women? 

Prejudice is not a new Idea at C,L.C,, oi anywhere else for that 
matter. Oftentimes It is well hidden behind a facade of pleasing 
paternalism and pseudo-concerned conservatism. But women dis- 
playing prejudice against women Is something else again. Maybe 
other students at this college have noticed an overt discrepancy 
between men's and women's standards. For example, why is it that 
men can go to classes in a grubby T*shlrt, baggies, and sandles 
while women are refused the right to wear comparatively cleaner 
and neater capris? And why are caprls '*proper" In the rain and not 
in the sun? Tlie attitude of women students, supposedly reflected 
by A.W.S, Standards, is that women **need" rules for dress in 
order to conform to some preconceived notion of a properly attired 
co-ed. Or else women can't be real women unless they wear dresses. 
Another possibility Is that the women's dress code serves as some 
type of tokenism to the convocators, regents, and occasional pa- 
rents who would be mortally offended at "indecently clad" women, 
I'm wondering how women who find caprls more comfortable and 
practical than dresses rationalize this double standard in dress 
regulations. Who represents the actual continguency when the time 
comes Sor a second look at these rules for which we give up our 
freedom of choice? 

Dress regulations aren't the only area where this discrepancy 
occurs at C.L.C. I wonder at the rationale behind the smoking rules 
for women. Both men and women have been smoking cigarettes for 
quite a while, yet women must lock themselves in certain areas, 
never outside. Perhaps women cause more forest fires tlian men, 
but I doubt it. There must be moreobjectlonable habits than smoking 
that have not as yet been didacUcly denounced by Standards, but ap. 
parently women smoking out of doors contains some special stigma. 
Do we then blindly accept Standards' unexplained prejudice? 

The real mystery of the separate-and-unequal regulations at CL.C, 
lies in the realm of women's hours. Women seem to need a paternal 
(pr Is It maternal?) Image to assign the exact time of arrival at the 
dorms, to wait up for them, and to spank their collective hand If they 
dare to enter a minute late. Few parents of high school girls would 
prescribe three ni^ts of early curfew for being twenty minutes late 
one night. In Judgingandsentenclngvlolators of their Divine Law, Wo- 
men's Standards represent a rather formidable babysitter. And what 
of the men? Seemingly, they are much more responsible and mature 
— capable of creating their own schedules. Each man chooses when 
he will be in the dorm, and then accepts the consequences — whether 
they are lower grades, loss of sleep, or curious roommates. Are 
women so weak, immature, or ignorant that they cannot accept such 
a responsibility? 

The time has come for an tionestreevaluatlonof the role of C.L.C, 
women. Are we willing to allow a set of archaic and insulting rules 
make our decisions for us? What, I wonder, would the men do If they 
were told what to wear, when to come into the dorms, and where 
to smoke a cigarette? I really can't picture C.L.C. men docilely 
submitting to such authoritarian face slapping. Why then should

Of Christianity 

Last week I asked the question, 
"Is there a way for us to follow 
two commandments of the Bible 
when we can not fbllow txith at 
the same time?" In James 2:10 
the Bible gives another command- 
ment worth noting. It reads, "for 
whoever keeps the whole law but 
tails In one point has become 
guilty of all of It." Now, how 
are your answers to the question? 

There Is no way for us to fol- 
low two conflicting command- 
ments at the same time, Jesus 
Christ realized this. He died on 
the cross to atone for our sins. 
But this does not give us a li- 
cense to sin whenever we want 
to. If it Is humanly possible, we 
must try not to sin. As Christians 
we must work on eliminating sit- 
uations where conflicting com- 
mandments occur. 

People who would take advan- 
tage of Christian actions are 
obviously not Christians, They 
have different attitudes and dif- 
ferent ideas. People are not bom 
with different attitudes; they 
learn them. A persons ability to 
learn Is inherited, but what a per- 
son learns Is determined by his 
envorinment. Christians are 
Christians because they have 
been exposed to Christian Ideals 
and because they are able to live 
in their environment as Christ- 
lans, or because their desire to 
be Christians was stronger than 
their fear of death. 

I will continue from here next 
week, I have got a long way to go, 
and there is so little room in our

Recently at CLC a minority of 
people took the time to do things 
that weren't Important yester- 
day. They were slowing things 
down and getting a chance to get 
behind this whole academic and 
social bag. TTiey were sitting In 
the coffee shop singing songs 
and expressing a need for fresh 
air. When they first Initiated this 
movement the masses said, 
"Those d. , , hippies" — or 
something to that effect. But to- 
day the mainstream is starting 
to take a closer look at the 
things that are really Important 
This was shown when a portion 
of the student body went out and 
showed some pent-up emotions by 
being free after the Agape Feast 
last Wednesday night. With this 
added Uiterest, CLC truly might 
flourish as a school with pride 
and not Just an Institution with 
systemltized students.

In the beginning there was man, he bore the fruit of Gcd,

But, as the world transpired, 

man reflected on his toll for the earth. 
He grew tired of the land and no longer considered. It 

Gods gift to man. 
So man turned to the heavens and there he thought he saw light???!! 
From then on man looked up and Increased his sight. — t 

Man turned to the sphere and looked at the eternal workings 

as cumbersome and trite. 
He began to work and mold the earth Into a queer and omnious thing. 
No longer did man live by the sun and moon, 

he created his own light. 
Where there was a rivers edge of green and brown, 
now there was a concrete bed — 
hard and white. 
Where once the earth was green and golden 
now a man made forest, 
and divided Into parking lots. 

But, don't question what as transpired, 

don't look for a new road 
For man must live by precedent, man must live, 
as he's told, 

don't run In the rain you might catch cold. 

don't speed, talk, smile, breath unless its the 

proper thing to do, 

or you'll be considered, "Blue," 
Don't make trouble, or create waves. 
This life Is so "great," so they say. 

Just cram your mind with facts 
facts that tell of 

respect for the dead 
and most Important, 

how to take a girl to bed. 
Tills Is our life — man, 
Isn't it grand???? 

O' this life is so glorious and beautiful 

we live like Kings 

we live so bontiful 
O' this is so very wonderful. 

Bloodstained tears of a far off land. 

Gives everyone a Job and money on hand, 
and a canned Ham 

on the fifth of every June, 
It's so beautiful that we can run their land 
We can make them happy, rich, and respect their fellow man. 

But, why? are these little people so very ungrateful?? 
They won't take our reality and sole. 

They won't succeedlll 
Must be thowe "Communists" 

giving them 

"the noble weed" 

We are the hope of all men 
We are the home of the free$ 

where all men live in harmony 

\rtiere Justice reigns and freedom rings 
off the head of every clubbing spree. 
And the Black Man is condemned and scorned 

for his lack of propriety. 

But, don't criticize the fatherland 

or those who shape your destiny. 
Because If you do, 
You'll losellt 
your Job 
your mind 

and all the friends you thought you had and knew. 
TTiey'U find a way to silence you 
We'll send out our boys in blue 
They" find a way to silence you. 
as the freedom bell rings In every head. 

But, there Is nothing you or I can do 

to change our trite and misguided crew. 
You and I are only two. 
You and I are only two 

knocking at their door. 
If they listen and let us In 

we'll surely have to pick ourselves up off the floor, 

they need no criticism, they know so much more, 

then you or I. 

So we'll live and breath the smoggy air, 

and enjoy the maneled country side. 
They don't care 

as long as they have their polished hardwood chair. 
We'll live, die; and pretend that all Is grand; 

No use kicking up the sand 
Let's Just remain of the silent mass 

who forever are sitting on their ass. 


Standing on a cliff between Past and Future 
I wonder: 
Why do these rivers of cold lead periodically 
lap at the banks of my Ego? 

Why does white clam bile meaninglessly ooze from 
the fissures of The Rocks of AU Ages? 

Should I take another step?

Upset Westerners 

by Frank Nausin 

I have just witnessed one of the most thrilling games of Kingsmen 
basketball that I have seen In my three years at CLC. The cocky 
Westerners from San Diego, fresh from an upset victory over hlgh- 
rldlng Azuza Pacific, who you remember clobbered the Kingsmen, 
came to Thousand Oaks-flguring 

on fattening their record. How- 
ever, when they left they were 
a sad bunch of Cowboys, 

The Kingsmen came out ready 
to play basketball and play they 
did. Using an impressive man to 
man defense the Kingsmen built 
up an early 9 to 2 lead. Only 
to see It dwindle to 15 to 14 
with 10:56 left In the first half. 
The lead see*sawed back and 
forth, until with about four min- 
utes to play in the first half 
they blitzed the Westerners for 
9 straight points to take a 10 
pt. lead of 34 to 24 into the 
locker room at the half. Ben- 
son and Mayfleld led the bar- 
rage in the first half with 13 
and 8 pts. respectively. 

The second half saw the West- 
erners whittle the lead down and 
with 15:25 the score was tied at 
39 to 39. From here the Kings- 
men and Westerners took turns 
sharing the lead. With 4:53 left 
In the game, the score read Kings- 
men 57, Westerners 56. From 
that point on the Kingsmen shut 
out the mighty men from Ca] 
Western. T^at is what Is called 
defense. With 1:52 left to play 
and leading 61 to 56Coach Camp- 
bell wisely called a time out and 
the Kingsmen went Into a stall 
and wisely ran out the clock. 
The game was won for the Kings- 
men at the foul line, as the rough 
and tumble Westerners were 
caught many times for Infrac- 
tions, Cal Western tires to in- 
timidate you with their rough 
house tactics but the Kingsmen 
were not to be denied this time. 
All In alt It was a sweet vic- 
tory for the Kingsmen and their 
supporters, even though the turn- 
out for the game was very U^t, 
Those who were there were treat- 
ed to some of the best basket- 
ball seen In these parts In a 
long time. Leading scorers for 
the Kingsmen were Bruce Benson 
with 21 pts. MUce Mayfleld with 
12 pts, and freshman Ralph 
Lucas, coming off the bench to get 
8 clutch pts. down the stretch 
drive and 10 pts. overall for the 

In other action this past week 
the Kingsmen dropped three 
games In a row. To Fresno 
Pacific, 97 to 80, to Riverside 
In a brawl 93 to 77, and to Pasa- 
dena 81 to 70. Against Fresno, 
Benson had 25 pts., Iverson 15 
pts., Mayfleld 14 pts., Clem 12 
pts. Against Riverside again it 
was Benson with 20 pts.. May. 
field 14 pts,, Iverson 12 pts., 
and Clem 11 pts. Against Pasa- 
dena Benson again led the scor- 
ers with 20 pts., and Mayfleld 
with 18 pts. The Kingsmen have 
been hampered by the loss of 
Junior guard Larry Peoples, who 
has an Injured wrist. 

The Knaves this week won one 
and lost two, beating Pasadena 
and losing to Riverside and Cal 
Western. Lead by Steve Jasper 
and Ralph Lucas the Knaves have 
complied a four wins and nine 
loss record. Other Knaves de- 

serving of attention are forwards, 
Ed Stllllan, and Ed Halverson, 
who both rebound well and play 
some really hustling defense. The 
Knaves are Improving with every 
game and playing better defense 
all the time, under the expert 
eye of coach Bob Pitman. 

Next Week 

Next week the Kingsmen host 
Blola and Claremont in two home 
games. The Kingsmen look to 
Improve their record of 4 and 
15, against these two teams. 
Come out and see them do It.

Alan Boal, representing the

It's Forum Time 
It's Forum Time 

by Gerald Rea 
During the spring quarter of 
last year the Thursday-aftemoon- 
Forums were a weekly highlight 
enjoyed by all Involved. The Fo- 
rums are starting again this year 
every TTiursday afternoon at 4:15 
p.m. in the College Union. Yes- 
terday the featured speakers 
were Dave DeMars and Ted Lar- 
son who spoke on the general topic 
of "Does White Prejudice Keep 
Black Prejudice Alive?" 

Hie Forums were originated 
last year by senior Bill Glover, 
who got the Idea from a Brown 
Beret function at Cal State Los 
Angeles. Bill realized that there 
were many Important Issues that 
required public revelation at C. 
L,C. He calls the Forum 
"CLC's only open free speech 
forum," and extends an invitation 
to any person with any viewpoint 
who wants to rap on any subject 
to call him at Ext. 345 and sched- 
ule a date. A scheduled appoint- 
ment is not necessary, however, 
since anyone who wants to can 
speak unscheduled if there Is 
enou^ time. 

Nest Thursday's Forum plans 
tentatively to feature a Draft Re- 
sistance speaker. 

If you have any interest at all 
in getting Involved or learning 
about what's happening today 
come to a Forum with an open 
mind and a serious heart. You 
might not like what Is said, but 
for your own sake you'd better 
come down and hear It.

Make America a better place 

Leave the country. 

Of all the ways America can grow, one way is by 
learning from others. 

There are things you can learn in the Peace 
Corps you can't learn anywhere else. 

You could start an irrigation program. And 
find that crabgrass and front lawns look a little 
ridiculous. When there isn't enough wheat to go 
around in Nepal. 

You could be the outsider who helps bring a 
Jamaican fishing village to life, for the first time 
in three hundred years. And you could wonder if 
your country has outsiders enough. In Watts. In 
Detroit. In Appalachia. On its Indian reservations. 

Last year, for the first time, Peace Corps 
alumni outnumbered Volunteers who are now out 
at work overseas. 

By 1980, 200,000 Peace Corps alumni will 
be living their lives in every part of America. 

There are those who think you can't change 
the world in the Peace Corps. 

On the other hand, maybe it's not just what 
you do in the Peace Corps that counts. 

But what you do when you get back.

Regents Board Approves 
Women's Hours Proposal! 

The women's hours proposal, 
several academ ic matters 
and a student senate pro- 
posal on privacy were approved 
this week by the Board of Re- 
gents, according toPresldentJohn 
W. Bachman. 

The women's hours proposal 

(which has crept up through the 

Women's Legislative Council, the 

Student Welfare Committee and 

faculty groups) states that all 

sophomores, Juniors, seniors and 

women over 21 will have no hours 

and that freshmen will have 12 

o'clock hours week nights and 2 

o'clock hours on week-ends. Also 

stated In the proposal is that no 

lates will be Issued and that the 

present sign- in-and-out system 

will be employed. 

Board Commends Students 
The new hours for women will 
go Into effect in the faU of 1969. 

The board commended the 
students and faculty for the man- 
ner In \^lch this change was a- 
chleved and noted that the parents 

surveyed were generally in favor 
of this proposal. 

The following statement was 
prt^wsed by the Student Senate 
and approved by the Board: 

"The college recognizes the 
right of a student to the pri- 
vacy of his room, and speci- 
fically forbids any college of- 
ficial to enter or to search a 
student's room or belongings, 
except In the following cases: 
where the official has suffi- 
cient reason to tielleve that a 
serious violation of college pol- 
icy has occurred or Is in prog- 
ress within, or where the of- 
ficial has sufficient reason to 
believe that an emergency exists 
within, or for non-emergency 
purposes of facilities mainte- 
nance, with the permission of the 
student or If the student has been 
notified In writing of the entry 
three days before, and that such 
entries shall not be undertaken

Simpler To React? 

Kent Drleitnek 

I have always thought that It would be a much easier task being a 
conservative than a liberal. It seemed to me that It would be much 
simpler to react to Innovations than to propose them. However, after 
last week's reaction to the New Left class by some conservatives 
on our campus my view of this political group has changed somewhat. 

The reasons proposed by these nonsupporters of the wew Left 
class must have been the result of a great amount of thought. The 
conservatives who thought up reasons for not wanting a New Left 
class on campus must have had to use their brains to a greater 
extent than those who proposed and developed the class. "Hie con- 
servatives must have wracked their brains trying to come up with 
a believable reaction. Too bad they didn't make It. 

TTie reasons for not supporting a New Left class are: 

1) If the class were adopted the Lutheran Church would withdraw 
its financial support of California Lutheran College. 

2) When the church had withdrawn funds the college would loose 
Its accreditation. 

As Is the case with many reactionary movements there Is a lack of 
documentation, I have not seen anywhere on this campus any state, 
ment by the financial backers of this college that funds would be 
removed If such a class were held. If there is such a statement let 
the students see It. Secondly, one experimental class Is not going to 
ruin the academic merits of our college and If the financial backers 
are so narrow minded as to think It would (which I am sure they 
don't) the college wouldn't be worth saving anyway. 

In conclusion, It should be realized that the proposed New Left 
class might not be the best experimental class ever proposed, but 
at least the developers of the class are trying to Improve by ex- 
perimentation. Only throu^ experimentation can the college insti- 
tution be Improved. Those who are advocatingthe dropping of the New 
Left class are those who are afraid of change. These people are satis- 
fied with the status quo. They are scared that change will destroy 
their sacred positions in this society, A society which they fall to 
realize Is leaving them far behind. 

with the Intent of 'search and 
seizure.' " 

Recognize Student Rights 

The board wanted to recognize 
the student's right to privacy while 
it also wished to make clear that 
a college owned room isn't ex- 
actly the same as a privately 
owned room, according to Bach- 

The board "realized that this 
statement doesn't resolve all 
questions and expressed hope that 
along with these rights the stu- 
dents would accept a responsi- 
bility for achieving the besi pos- 
sible living conditions within the 
social situation which prevails 
In such multiple units," said Bach- 

Coffee House 

By now every student sliould 
have some knowledge of the forth., 
coming Coffee House — perhaps 
that it happens February 22, or 
that It takes place In the CUB, 
or even that it costs nothing to 
attend. Those people in charge 
of It feel, however, that the pub- 
lic should have at hand other per- 
tinent facts. 

The Coffee House and the fol- 
lowing record dance are not a 
product of any organization try- 
ing to make money. A few weeks 
ago, a few students who were 
concerned — that Is, fed up — 
with not having a campus activity 
fun to go to every night of the 
weekend — these students went 
to Dean Hall. She and Dean Gang, 
sei were enthusiastic and gave the 
students a free rein In carrying 
out their ideas. Committees were 
set up for food, publicity, enter- 
tainment, etc. 

Here's the basic Information: 
At 8:00 p.m. on Saturday night, 
the Coffee House will open. TTiree 
performers will entertain every 
hour for forty-five minutes. Me- 
Ilssa Hartzell of San Diego State 
has sung in coffee houses all over 
the state. LesMore, who reputed. 
ly sings like Donovan, has sung 
here before (at the Valkoni- 
nofest), Dennis Agajanian will be 
appearing also. The dance after- 
wards will last till 1:00 a.m. 

TTiere will be atmosphere, food 
(coffee, popcorn, Coke, dough, 
nuts, all sold practically at cost), 
cute waitresses, tables, floor 
space, ashtrays, etc., etc. Best 
of all — and mark this, dear 
readers — there will be no en- 
trance fee whatsoever. So If you 
have been complaining about hav< 
ing nothing to do on campus over 
the weekend, come and enjoy 
yourself. If this coffee house Is 
even moderately successful, 
there will be plans for more.

helped to clarify the function 
of religious institutions and the 
rights of clergymen to speak out 
about the social and political Is- 
sues of the day. 

Dubay's first book. The Hu- 
man Church, which appeared in 
February 1966, received more 
critical attention than any other 
religious book published that 
year. In it DuBay capsuled his 
suggestions for the Roman Cath- 
olic Church In five points. On the 
occasion of publication, he deli- 
vered a paper at the Center for 
the Study of Democratic Institu- 
tions proposing collective bar- 
gaining as a solution for the cris- 
is among U. S. clergymen. The 
resulting publicity drew a suspen- 

slon from assignment by Cardi- 
nal Mclntyre. Father Dubay Im- 
mediately contested the grounds 
of this action and a trial is still 
pending In Rome. 

Father Dubay then served as 
a religious consultant for Syna- 
non Foundation. In October, 1966 
he opened up the offices of the 
America Federation of Priests 
In Santa Monica which served as 
a center for the organization of 
priest associations across the 
country. In 1967 he was appoint- 
ed the director of the VISTA 
Training Program in Los Ang- 
eles, which allowed him to fur- 
ther expand his contacts with 
young people, social revolution, 

and the problems of the Cali- 
fornia ghettos. During this time 
he continued to publish articles 
in many magazines and to lec- 
ture widely across the countrv. 
Always well received on cam- 
pus, he often conducts seminary 
on consciousness eiqianslon, 
meditation, and religion. 

Father Dubay considar£ r 
Ion as the central concern of his 
life. "Religion has always play- 
ed a part In changing the social 
scene," he says, "as well as 
keeping It going. It never al- 
lows Itself to be used merely 
for the legitimation of social 

structures, but always points 
out the ephemeral notions on 
which society Is based. For that 
reason, religion Is becoming 
more Important than ever In help- 
ing people to accept the change 
and chaos of our times."

Very few artists have the staying power of Bobby Vee. 

Bobby got his big break in 1959 when he was called on to fill in for 
Buddy Holly at a concert In Fargo, North Dakota when Buddy's

of a Motown hit; songs like "Beauty's Only Skin Deep," "Stub,

Dear Editor: 

I have a suggestion which I 
think can help ease tensions In 
the current discussion (?) about 
the proposed New Left seminar. 

TTie Idea of a student-planned, 
student-led seminar Is commend- 
able. I would think It grossly un- 
fair if a majority of the students 
were to veto plans by a minority 
to hold a seminar on a subject 
of their own choosing. 

In this controversy, the 
"champions for the cause" of a 
student-oriented seminar happen 
also to be the "champions for the 
cause" of a specific seminar 
dealing with the "New Left." I 
would suggest that these students 
leaders spend more energy In 
trying to implement the seminar 
program In general and THEN 
applying for the "New Left" as 
an initial topic. 

I think that many students who 
are not necessarily Interested In 
the "New Left" would like to 
see a seminar open to all topics 
become a reality here at CLC,

Ah So Good 

One of the most Interesting results of the new awareness of the 

tental cultures has been the meldlngs of oriental with western 
music. „ 

With the release of the Columbia LP "Eastern Ferris wheel" 
CCS9746) by Steve Addis and Bill Crofut, the merger reaches Its 
ultimate eidenslon. 

Addis and Crofut have Imposed western Instruments on Eastern 
music with astounding results. It's like suklyaki with cornbread. 
Like sakl on the rocks. Or like a minl-kimono. 

Some of the musical bits are very clever. Best among them 
is entitled "He is There" which is a combination of a dozen r so 
folk songs into one giant put-down. Another great sound Is "Forty 
Days" a religious oratorio by Dave Brubeck (on which Brubeck 
and his combo appear). 

The album is pretty heavy listening at times, but well worth It 
if you want to hear the ultimate in the merging of musical forms. 

Besides, ten minutes later you want to hear it again.

A Solution 


Glrlsl Glrlsl — leave us not 
get messed up over nothlngi Over 
a small matter of dress you have 
split the AWS Into three tactions: 
the Thinking Majority, the SUent 
Majority (two majorities?) and 
Women EqualityC?). To me. It 
makes not that much difference, 
I don't really mind If a girl 
wants to look like a man, dress 
like a man (smell like a man?) 
as long as she doesn't mlndbelng 
treated like a mani No matter! 
I do not see how a matter of 
mere dress can confuse the Is- 
sue. I mean, a girl looks like 
a girl (basically) and a man like 
a man, I have yet to see one who 
looks like the other, or who 
.really camouflage his orhertrue 
personality with clothing. 

However, as I have said, I do 
not object to wierd girls; nay, I 
rather enjoy them — watching 
them, that Is. What I fear Is the 
effect that this split may have 
upon this fair campus. I mean, 
If one majority continues to act 
and dress like girls, while an- 
other majority "begins to dress 
and act like their male counter- 
parts, we males would have an In- 
tolerable situation on our hands. 
A solution to his problem, there* 
fore, must be found quickly, Ibe- 
lieve I have one: If the Silent 
Majority wishes to continue to 
act like girls, if the the Think- 
ing Majority wishes to dress and 
act Independently of criticism, 
and If Women Equality want all 
women to be equal, why not wear 
that which would be pleasing to 
all? Tliat Is, nothing at allll 

With such a solution I, for one, 
can find no fault.

Students And The New Left 

students have a great deal to offer in the classroom. Indeed, if It 
weren't for the student, neither education, the college, the profes- 
sor, nor many or our cherished Institutions would exist (although 
there are many who have a strong tendency to discredit the value 
of the student ,) The student should be permitted to have an active 
role in the classroom (professors are all too frequently sterile in 
their methods) to make the learning process more meaningful. 

However, students should not pretend they know more than every- 
one else by advocating that they become the teachers. If a class 
were student-taught, student-graded, and student-administered, some 
students would find they had bitten off more than they could chew. 
TTie problems In being both the student and the teacher at the same 
time are complex. If all of the students have the right to run a 
course, which students will havethepower?Acommlttee of students? 
What gives some students In such a situation Dower over others. 
Oh yes, I know, as George Orwell said In "Animal Farm," "All 
animals are equal, but some are more equal than others," 

Really, there are doggone few students who would entrust their 
grades and academic credits to other students. As one student piped 
up at the New Left meeting last week, "The faculty Is authoritarian 

Tlie topic being addressed at this point Is the proposed "New 
Left" course which has been at Issue lately. It all began (we have 
to have a point somewhere) with a petition being circulated among 
students. The petition asked for a student-run course to be offered 
ioT academic credit on the S/U system, 

Tlie Idea is good (as many Ideas are, In theory), but If a student 
is taking a course to learn how can he be e)5)ected to teach It also. 
Sure, he can contribute. But the Committee on Accreditation of 
the Western Association of Schools and Colleges just may take a 
dim view of a faculty which has members who haven't even earned 
a baccalaureate degree. 

"nie New Left Is Important to all members of society. It has an 
Influence and may or may not Sean element or catalyst In the shaping 
of our futures. Also, the New Left (as an organization) Is hi^y 
unorganized and plagued by Internal disputes, tack of organization, 
lack of central, specific goals. It Is an unsophisticated, non-academic 
non-intellectual philosophy of rapid change. Although not new. 
Its value as an Important part of society Is established by definition 
(jnoral judgments are not present here). 

However, as alluded to earlier, the members of the New Left are 
not really sure what they stand for. Sure, ideas are there, hopes are 
there, revolution Is there but plans and organization and success 
(so far) is not. 

If the members of the New Left are not able to get their heads 
together and figure out what they really want and how to get It. 
how can anyone expect a group of students (any group of students) 
to be able to teach themselves about something tliat few really know 
much about. 

Don't get me wrong. Study of the New Left definitely should be In the 
academic curriculum, but the class should be conducted, with a 
large degree of student participation, by a Instructor who knows more 
than occasional blurbs on this animal known as the New Left. True, 
professorial Instruction is frequently devoid of anything useful but let 
us not find ourselves pushing for something akin to the blind leading 
the blind (or somewhere along those lines),

Resolutions Of TALC Student Conference 

Students Rights 

Whereas, the colleges and unlver- 
sities of TALC exist for the edu- 
cation of Its students, and 
Whereas, the education received 
at said institutions must be rele- 
vant education of the highest 

Therefore, be it resolved that 
each student and the student body 
collectively develop freedom of 
inquiry both within and without 
the classroom, especially in 
areas termed "controversial," 
complete autonomy after fulfill- 
ing academic requirements, es- 
pecially in student governments 
and newspapers, work towards 
freedom from administrative 
control, pressure, and infringe- 
ment upon his life and rights, 
especially in the aspect of moral- 
ity, and work towards a direct 
line of communication with the 
governing board of the school, 

Be it further resolved that each 
ALC Institution delineate and 
adopt these rights for Its students 
in a statement on student rights 
and freedoms, using Edward 
Swartz's The Joint Statement on 
the Academic Freedom of Stu. 
dents, A Summary and an Anal- 
ysis as a guide. 

Selective Conscientious Objection 

Afro-American Studies Program 

Whereas, statements In the Augs- 
burg Confession on "just war" 
give credence to selective con- 
scientious objection; and 

Whereas, some individuals ques- 
tion the morality of the Viet Nam 
War and feel that they cannot In 
good conscience accept military 
service; and 

Whereas, there is consequently 
an Immediate need for alterna- 
tives to military service; and 
Whereas, the church has an obli- 
gation to speak to all areas of 
life; and 

Whereas, many ministers there- 
fore may need church guidelines 
to counsel young men on the war 
and military service; and 

Whereas, The ALC in general 
convention In Omaha, Nebraska, 
was confronted with the issue of 
selective conscientious objection 
and failed to act decisively and 
relevantly to a significant issue 
of these times, 

Be it therefore resolved that The 
ALC Student Conference ex. 
presses their disappointment of 
the failure of The ALC to support 
the statement on selective con- 

scientlous objection as presented 
by the Commission on Research 
and Social Action; and Be It fur- 
ther resolved that the ALC Stu. 
dent Conference urges the dls- 
tricts and congregations of The 
ALC to consider and debate this 
statement with all seriousness; 

Be it further resolved that The 
ALC Student Conference urges 
students at ALC colleges to pre- 
sent public debates on both sides 
of this Issue before various con* 
gregatlonal and district groups; 

Be It further resolved, that The 
ALC Student Conference urges 
that the statement on selective 
conscientious objection be ad- 
opted as an official policy state- 
ment of The ALC at the 1970 
general convention in San Anton, 

(The statement on conscientious 
objection was considered by The 
ALC General Convention in 
Omaha and was referred to fur- 
ther committee study) 

Whereas, at this time It is nec- 
essary for an In - depth study of 
Afro - American history, In that 
so • called American history and 
cultural courses have not con- 
fronted the student with the real 
Issues or challenged the student 
to re - examine the value base 
of American society, and 

Whereas, an Afro • American 
history course would 

1) Open minds to analyze the ex- 
perience of ethnic groups in 

2) Reveal the depth of white rac- 
ism and counter racist propa- 

3) Transmit awareness of black 

4) Create Inner examination of 
self and church 

5) Give momentum to reshape 
current attitudes, and 

Whereas, we realize that a teach- 
er's point of view and awareness 
are vital to the accomplishment 
of the above purposes, and that 
the teachers of all Afro-Ameri- 
can studies programs should 

While Racism 

"What white Americans have 
never fully understood — but what 
the Negro can never forget — Is 
that white society Is deeply Im- 
plicated in the ghetto. White In- 
stitutions created It, white Insti- 
tutions maintain it, and white 
society condones it." 
In addressing ourselves tj the 
Issue of white racism, we the 
delegates to The American Lu- 
theran Church Student Confer- 
ence (1968) make the following 

White racism refers to the con. 
sclous and unconscious subjuga- 
tion of minority groups by the 
w*ilte race. This subjugation 
takes many forms and Is found 
in every area of life in America. 
It should be firmly understood 
that there exists an historic pat- 
tern of racist behavior on the 
part of the white community to- 
wards all minorities. Further, 
It should be recognized that the 
brown and black American has 
had to stand the major brunt of 
discriminatory actions based on 
conceptions of inferiority that are 
altogether without basis. 

If there exists an inherent In- 
equality, It is In the way in which 
past generations have subjugated 
the American Black to those posi- 
tions of bondage and educational 
Inferiority. The pattern is firm- 
ly entrenched In the American 
way of life and therefore requires 
prompt actions towards re- 

Today's youth, while sharing the 
guilt for what their fathers have 
done , proclaim a cognizance of 
their responsibility and dedicate 
themselves to eradicating the 
present cancerous status quo. 
it is the sentiment of the youth 
of today that there exists a com- 
mltment to the black man that only 
a total effort can remove. 

Censure and good example will 
serve as the theme for this awak- 
ening. No longer will the Indl. 
vidua! who uses the term "Nig- 
ger" go unchallenged. No long- 
er will the black community be 
considered the center of cor- 
rection. The real problem of 
racist America lies within the 
white community. 

We further recognize that It 
Is not enough to merely meet 
and discuss this Issue, but It 
is necessary to address our- 
selves to those In power. 

Richard Nixon 

We urge that your administra- 
tion be one dedicated to solving 
the crisis of the urban black 
and brown community. Among 
them we call special attention 
to the following: 

Despite a reduction In over- 
all unemployment rates, sub- 
stantial "hardcore" unemploy- 
ment continues. Among blacks 
the jobless rate Is twice the na- 
tional average; among black 
young people It Is more than 
three times as great. 

According to achievement 
tests the average minority group 
child In metropolitan areas Is 
behind other children when he 
begins school, and the gap tends 
to widen; he is roughly two grades 
behind the others at grade six; 
three grades behind at grade 
nine; and four grades behind at 
grade twelve. 

In poverty neighborhoods of 
the fifteen largest cities rough- 
ly 60 per cent of the tenth- 
grade drop out before finishing 
hlgli school; unemployment and 
delinquency rates among drop- 
outs are many times greater 
than the national average. 

Despite generally high rates 
of private housing construction, 
the goal of "a decent home and 
a suitable living environment for 
every American" proclaimed in 
the 1949 Housing Act remains 
unfulfilled for millions of fam- 
ilies. Nearly two-thirds of all 
minority group families today 
live In neighborhoods marked 
with unsuitable housing and ur- 
ban blight. 

And we call for faithful execution 
of the fair housing provision of 
the civil rights bUl recently 
passed by Congress. 

And, weflrmlybellevelntheposl- 
tlve value of IntercuUural and 
Interracial educational experien- 
ces for all children. Integrated 
schools expand the knowledge and 
understanding of the child. In- 
crease his awareness of others, 
and provide lessons of tolerance 
and fairness that are Important 
assets to the Individual and to 

And, we stand affirmed against 
the use of the phrase, "LAW 
AND ORDER" as a means to fur- 

ther subjugate the black com- 
munity. We certainly want order 
in our society, but it can only 
be achieved through working at 
eradicating the causes of dis- 
order and not through a safe reli- 
ance on police power. 

Despite the passage of numer. 
ous civil rights laws at all lev- 
els of government, widespread 
discrimination and segregation 
continue In employment, educa- 
tion and housing due to uneven 
enforcement of existing laws and 
gaps in coverage. Moreover, the 
recent passage of Federal fair 
housing legislation establishes a 
desirable goal but will not alone 
eliminate segregated housing 
conditions. As recognized In the 
legislation, leadership at local 
and state levels is a necessary 
and positive factor for achiev- 
ing progress In the elimination 
of such discrimination. The 
persistence of white racism and 
injustices contribute greatly to 
the sense of frustration and re- 
sentment among minority groups 
In the city. 

Therefore, be It resolved, that 
we Improve educational opportun- 
ities, expand job opportunities, 
training, and provide job Incen- 
tives, and remove employment 
barriers as the keys to providing 
more Individuals with enlarged 
opportunities of self • improve- 
ment and fulfillment. The Individ- 
ual in turn has the responsibility 
for seeking and using opportun- 
ities to Improve himself and his 
community. This approach. In 
combination with welfare meas- 
ures to protect the individual 
from temporary hardship, offers 
a constructive and lasting solu- 
tion to the problems of poverty 
and disadvantage In the cities. 

And, we urge the expansion of 
child care facilities to be avail- 
able In each state for working 

And, we recommend fuller In. 
volvement for the members of 
the community in the solution of 
their problems. They should be 
in control of the community ac 
tlon boards in each area. 

To The 
Lutheran Church 

Because of Its European back- 
ground, the Lutheran Church has 
had a difficult time attracting 
members of minority groups. 
Much of this has been because 
of tradition. However, blacks and 
Mexican - Americans will never 
feel at home In the Lutheran 
Church until its white constitu- 
ency decides that one of Its top 
priorities Is to make the com- 
plexion of the church similar to 
the complexion of the country. 
I.e., white, black, brown, red, 
and yellow. 

We highly recommend that a se- 
ries of services in each congre- 
gation be devoted toexplorlngthe 
issue of racism. The evaluation 
may well be geared to answering 
the question, *1s It possible to be 
a Christian and a racist at the 
same time?" 

We further believe that one of 
the main reasons black and other 
minorities are not brought Into 
the church Is because of the 
"Parish System," which Is usu- 
ally structured so as to Include 
only the white community sur- 
rounding the church. We feel that 
It Is necessary to go beyond the 
parish. Furthermore, this out.

therefore be carefully selected, 
Therefore, be it resolved that 
Afro . American studies pro- 
grams should be established, and 
the revltallzatlon of history 
should extend to all areas of the 
field In order to obtain a re- 
levant perspective. To avoid 
parochialism, the role of all 
ethnic groups shouldbe Incorpor- 
ated in order to change the sil- 
ence which has perpetuated dis- 
tortions that manifest racism. 
Being aware of the vast limit- 
ing extent of experience In the 
traditional classroom situation, 
we further propose a credit 
course that creates an oppor. 
tunity for students to participate 
In an "Inner city happening" that 
would provide experience and 
feeling rather than a remoteness 
from action that can be an Im- 
passe to true awareness. 

We also urge congregations to 
gear their Parish Education pro- 
grams to the discussion of social 

reach should be geared in such a 
way as to make It a genuine at- 
tempt to relate to a brother, to 
discover his needs and minister 
to them without the attitude of 
paternalism, and without simply 
trying to recruit him as a church 

To Lutheran 



Being founded by essentially a 
white institution, It Is very easy 
to remain secluded from the 
world of race. However, the pri- 
vate Christian college should be 
at the vanguard In areas of faster 
growing black student populations 
black cultural and history cour- 
ses, spieakers who can explain 
the mood and help us understand 
the dynamics of Black Power. 
Christian colleges are free to 
experiment In admitting minori- 
ties who do not necessarily have 
the grades, but have the willing- 
ness and potential to learn to 
participate in this type of educa- 

We recommend that students, 
faculties, and adminlstratlors of 
all Lutheran colleges establish 
the exploration and understand. 
Ing of racism as one of the top 
priorities for this school year. 



At ALC Conventions 

Whereas we, the students of The 
ALC Student Conference have no 
direct representation at the Gen- 
eral Convention of The Amerl- 
can Lutheran Church, and 

Whereas, we feel that The Ameri- 
can Lutheran Church should 
desire such representation from 
Its youth, and 

Whereas, we desire such direct 

Be it therefore resolved that we, 
assembled at the 1968 ALC Stud- 
ent Conference, request from the 
President of The .American Lu- 
theran Church that three student 
representatives, selected by the 
Conference, be given status at 
each General Convention as vot- 
ing delegates. 

Further, we strongly recommend 
the seating of two students from 
each ALC college and seminary 
as official visitors to the Gener. 
al Convention and district con- 
ventions In order to better repre- 
sent the student bodies of these In-

Whereas, migrant quarters lack 
facilities for food storage, bath,

water supplies or toUet facilities 
are available. Disease is wide- 
spread with little or no access 
to medical services. Buildings 
(rented on farm) aredelapldated, 
the furniture (VS. any) is ram- 
shackle. Rats, Insects, and sew- 
age are common problems. The 
newer buildings are overcrowded 
and depressing. 

Whereas, due to the mobility and 
poverty of the migrant workers, 
the educational opportunities are 
severely limited. One in five 
thousand graduates from high 
school. More than one-half have 
not gone beyond the el^th grade. 
Language for the Mexican - 
Americans Is a major barrier. 
Whereas, migratory farmwork- 
ers have been partly excluded 
from routine benefits such as 
unemployment insurance, work, 
men's compensation, social sec- 
urlty, welfare assistance, child 
labor protection, and minimum 
wage standards. Only 25,000 of 
the 2.5mllIionfarm workershave 
the benefits provided by union 
contracts. They have little 
contact with unions and little 
idea of either Iwneflts or re- 
sponsibilities of union member, 

Whereas, wages are often Insuf- 
ficient to maintain a car (and 
sometimes to buy gas) for the

Whereas, the average migrant

Capital Punishment 

Whereas, capital punishment 
does not accomplish its Intended 
goals— those being to save the 
taxpayers money and to act as a 
deterrent to crime, 

Whereas, capital punishment has 
proven to be a form of dlscrim. 
Inatlon against minority groups, 
troth ethnic and economic (such 
as in the celebrated case of 
Thomas Whltehawk in South -Dak- 

Whereas, capital punishment 
does not comply with the ideals 
of modern criminal penology — 
that being rehabilitation. 

Be it hereby resolved that we, 
the delegates to the 1968 Ameri- 
can Lutheran Church Student Con- 
ference do endorse and support 
any attempts made toward the 
repeal and abolishment of capl- 
tal punishment, and do strongly 
request endorsement by other 
church and state organizations. 

Chomas Whltehawk — An Indian 
medical student sentenced to 
death for the murder of a Jew- 
eler in Vermillion, South Dakota. 
This is the first case of capital 
punishment In South Dakota in 
two decades despite similar of- 
fenses by white persons.

Finds Out 
What's Happening 

by Nancy Pingree 

Wednesday February 12 a 
varied group of California Lu- 
theran College students met hi 
the gym. TTie open meeting was 
the second of Its kind called to 
duscuss the future of the student 
initiated and organized course, 
'"ITie New Philosophy of the 
Polls,** TTie tentative course out- 
line was made available to the 
general student body prior to 
the meeting and the meeting was 
called to obtain reaction, and 
more Importantly action, on the 

Some of the students ended up 
reacting to elements which hind- 
ered the constructive purposes of 
the meeting. Perhaps If the 
rumors had been true the time 
wasted discussing them would 
not have been wasted. TTie main 
fear seemed to come from how 
"academically sound** the course 
would be. The syllabus was ru- 
mored to be copied from a course 
run by the SDS and therefore caus- 
ing the Federal Bureau of Inves. 
ligation to Investigate; ultimate- 
ly, if anyone took the student, 
taught course they would be un. 
able to get a government job or 
teach in California. Also, If the 
course went through, California 
Lutheran College would lose its 
accreditation through somenebu. 
lous process of losing money and 
academic standing. 

As the meeting extended It- 
self into four hours of rap and 
revising of the outline some of 
the difficulties and objections 
were overcome. Changes were In- 
corporated after suggestions 
were made by students who felt 
the course would he strengthen- 
ed by amendments. These 
changes are the following: A 
faculty moderator was added; re- 
quirements were made more spe- 
cific, more speakers were tenta- 
tively added, and the reading list 
was extended and Is still open 
for further additions, 

TTiat afternoon the revised out- 
line was presented by the Phi- 
losophy Department to the Edu- 
catlonai Policies Committee. Be- 
fore final consideration and ap- 
proval the EPC is going to hear 
representatives from the stu- 
dents, faculty, and administra- 
tors on February 26. 




Whereas, the urban crisis Is of 
the utmost Importance In this 20th 
century, and 

Whereas, the church has for too 
long ignored the situations of 
both the urban complex and of 
the minority groups; we do how- 
ever wish to commend The ALC 
and express our approval of the 
action taken by the general con- 
vention in Omaha in allothig 
$511,000 for unspecified urban 
needs, and 

Whereas, the church must live 
Its faith in its community, and 
Whereas, traditional styles of 
education do not consistently pro- 
vide for ah adequate understand- 
ing of the urban crisis. 

Be it resolved, that since funda- 
mental changes are being made 
in the ALC's Department of 
Metropolitan Ministry under the 
American Missions Division, and 
in view of those changes we en- 
courage the DMM to adopt and 
develop the Listening Witness 
approach to awareness of the ur- 
ban situation by Inner city church- 
es and colleges, and 

Be it further resolved^that we en- 
dorse and encourage experlmen. 
tal curriculum change as It re- 
lates to the urban crisis. In par- 
tlrular, we endorse the Crisis 
Colony project at Augsburg Col- 
lege, and we encourage other 
ALC campusestolmplementsim- 
Uar programs.

Moe, a hlRh'SChool teacher who 
lives at 320 W, Pallzada In San 
Clemente, California, wlllbetra* 
vellng over the western part of the

"King and I" — will be produced 
in repertory from June 28 through 
August 31. Rehearsals start June 

The 16 company members, who 
In the past years have come 
from all partsof the United States 
receive room and t)oard and a 
small salary for their services. 

New members of the company 
wUl find themselves working with 
such fine musical comedy per- 
isrmers as John McEvoy, who Is 
a third-year teacher In Seattle 
who has been with the company 
for three years; his wife, Suzanne 
Dundas, from Missoula, Montana; 
Karen Wadleigh Moe, an ex- 
Washington State University stu- 
dent from Pullman, Washington, 
and San Clemente, California; and 
Doug Houston, a University of 
Oregon at Eugene graduate who 
was reared In Coos Bay but now 

teaches In New York, 

Said Moe, "This Is the fifth year 
fbr repertory summer theatre in 
Coeur d' Alene. Each year it 

has become more and more suc- 
cessful. Last year the group play- 
ed to 6,000 people in the 190- 
seat theatre," 

Robert McLeod, who Is a 
teacher In the Spokane Valley and 
who is a member of the Coeur 
d' Alene Community Theatre and 
is their co-ordlnator for the sum- 
mer project, said, "Company 
members not only have the op- 
portunity to participate In a first- 
rate repertory theatre but also 
to take advantage of the terrific 
recreational activities that Coeur 
d' Alene has to offer." McLeod 
adds, "The semi-professional di- 
rectors that are provided give 
company members a fine oppor- 
tunl^ for theatrical growth. Rob- 
ert Moe, of course, Is a director 
of repute not only In the North- 
west for his work with the Coeur 
d' Alene theatre as well as other 
civic and college theatres but also 
theatres In Southern California, 
Valleda Woodhall,who has danced 
professionally In London In such 
shows as 'Brlgadoon' and 'Okla- 
homa' Is on the staff, too," 

Pattle Hair, a company mem- 
ber from Cheney, Washington, 
said "My work in the Coeur d' 
Alene Summer Theatre was a 
profitable and enjoyable one. In 
working with Robert Moe, Ifound 
that his creative ability andthea- 
trlcal Instinct were the major 
source of the theatre's success. 
Not only did the people of Coeur 
d' Alene provide responsive and 
enthusiastic audiences, but their 
warmth and friendliness height- 
ened the beauty of their city.

Every morning for sixteen years, 

I went, 

Never once question. 
I learned math, engllsh and other Important things. 
Never once questioning. 

TTiey told me that If I was to be happy and succeed, 
I must strive, 
"for these grades." 
'^ever once questioning. 
I learned that we were rl^t, that they were wrong — 
those killers from the East 

Never once questioning, 
We have to prevent their blood feast. 

I learned that America was mighty and the home of the brave, 
■niat, "they" were evil; killers of mankind and all living things. 
"they were attempting to put us Into the grave." 
Never once questioning 
I went to war to right toe wrongs, "they had made." 
Never once questioning, 
I fell in marching. 

When I came home, we had won that — war. 
The threat of Communism was no more. 
But still the threat of unrest prevailed. 
Students, young people everywhere, 

exchanged money, for descent and ideals. 
We could not understand these children. 
What did they know? 

they never owned land 

they never killed a man. 
They should learn what, "responsibility means," Instead of this other sham. 

There Is no place In this land for pacifists. 

We live In a world of clenched fists. 
We learned to live this tough, hard life, no use changing the mess 
We knew what life meant. 
Just turn your back on it, 

leave well enough alone. 
Instead of creating descent. 

As I grew old I dreamed 

of Florida. 

Never once questioning. 
I wanted to live In comfort and quietness, 

1 had to get away from the "mess," 
Why should I have to live with this protest, 
I had been a good American 
I had money 

a house 

a wife 

and I attended Church, supported my local police, 

and gave money to the local Priest, 
Never once questioning. 

This is the life of John Doe 
His life flickering and waning 
tike a light 
of the Fire Fly, 
Yes, this Is the life of John Doe. 
He past away last night, 
and his grave stone will read, 
"I lived and Died 
In a Lie,"

Decisions! Decisions! 

One of them should be a buying decision 

As a college student, you learn to make 
decisions. One of the most important 
should concern life insurance . . . from 
Aid Association for Lutherans. AAL is 
a fraternalife insurance society for 
Lutherans . , . and that's a big ad- 
vantage to the Lutheran student. 

When it comes to life insurance. 
Lutheran college students get a bar- 
gain. That's because of age and good 
health, and because AAL's rates are 
low to begin with. 

Another reason . . . Lutheran stu- 
dents can have certain guaranteed 
purchase options that assure them of 
being able to buy additional insur- 

ance later on regardless of health. 

AAL representatives (who are Luth- 
eran) serve all 50 states and five prov- 
inces of Canada . . . we're the largest 
fraternal life insurance society in 

Take time to talk to an AAL repre- 
sentative soon. Let him show you the 
advantages of starting a Iffe insurance 
plan at your present age. And have him 
show you how dollars saved with AAL 
do double-duty . . . provide protec- 
tion for you while helping support 
Lutheran benevolent causes. Aid Asso- 
ciation for Lutherans, where there's 
common concern for human worth.

Fraternalife Insurance 

Of Christianity 

by Steve Williams 

Two weeks ago I was talking 
about environment. I said that 
Christians are Christians be- 
cause they have been exposed to 

Christian Ideals. People who 
would take advantage of Christ- 
ians live In a "dog^at-dog" 
world, or believe kindness Is 
a sign of weakness. The rules 
of their societies make Christ- 
ians misfits. What makes up the 
environment of a person? TTiere 
are his family, his friends, his 
community, his nation, and the 
world that we live In. These are 
all factors relating to people. 
There may be physical factors 
involved, such as climate and 
sanitation, but we are concern- 
ing ourselves here with man's 
relationship to man. The key 
to all of this lies In society. 

There maybe rules thatsoclety 
has that goes against Christian 
teaching. We can not disobey 
these rules without condemna- 
tion by those who obey them. 
What we as Christians must do 
is change these rules. Unless 
we try to change them^ we are 
not Christians. 

Next week I wUl begin dis- 
cussing rules of our society. I 
will talk about the people they 
affect, their environments, and 
the changes that must be made 
in society's rules. 


Mixed In with the dust of the earth, 
the useless ashes of a man were

world the sad story of R. and H.

International B-Ball 

A Success 

It has been said that "Jesus was 
in better company In the stable 
than he would be In many a 
"Christmas" party. 
— from "Good News" 
January 1969 

by Frank Nausin 

In a first ever occurence, C 
Basketball that may never be 
International basketball game to 
never recover from the alter 
representing countries, we saw a 
vast number of costumes not to 
mention a small middle East 
Crisis. But I'm getting ahead 
of myself. 

It was a foggy Monday night 
in the Conejo, the tickets had 
been sold and everyone waited 
in eager anticipation for the game 
that evening. You might say Cal- 
*Lu had been hit with hoop fever. 
That evening finally came and 
the anxious students Jammed the 
gym to get a look at this fab. 
ulous crop of basketball talent. 
The eternal light from Mt. Olym- 
pus was lit and the game was 
ready to proceed. Led by Dr, 
Tseng the faculty ascendedonthe 
hapless students In full regalia. 
There was Abdul Paris direct 
with a communique from Cairo 
and Rabbi Caldwell, who tells me 
the game was being broadcast 
live and direct over radio Tel 
Aviv. The game was halted sev. 
eral times in order to bring a 
cease tire between these two. 
There was Mr. Taggert, from 
Cuba, Mr. Murley, champion 
weight lifter of Ireland, with his 
perfect 36 Jersey on. And of 
course there was Dr. Tseng, who 
came directly from helping one 
of his Compatriot at S. F. State 
and apparently got his friend's 
hat In the process. 

The game was a slap - stick 
affair, with Dean Hall calling 
eloping penalties, and Willie 
Ware giving student power lec- 
tures to the students at the time 
outs. The Jaculty led by Dr. 
Gimmestad's 10 pt. opening bas- 
tet and another 10 pointer byMr. 
Sharor, barely edged the students 
on a desperation hook shot at the 
buzzer by Coach Shoup. TXie final 
score was International stars 50 
pts,, students 49 pts. 

In all seriousness the evening 
was a success for the Inter- 
national Organizations class, who 
is attempting to raise money for 
a trip to the U.N. The class made 
approximately $350 towards the 
trip. They are still way short of 
their goal but Dr. Tseng is opti- 
mistic of their chances. So when 
the next project comes along 
get out and really support this 
class, so that they can reach their 
goal and take their trip to the 

,L.C. experienced an exhibition In 

forgotten. It was the first ever 

be played at Cal-Lu, And we may 

effects. With the C.L.C. faculty 



The Idea Behind The Sign 

I am glad to answer Mr. Gerald Rea's letter of Feb. I3th. I ordi- 
narily avoid being carriedaway Intodrawn-outargumentsln the Echo, 
Mr. Rea has posed an honest question, though, and deserves an honest 
answer. I will take his second question first. 

TTie answer to his second question Is that my "America — Love 
It or Leave It" sign is NOT "always" turned inward. It Is usually 
turned Inward by default, simply because it Is on the lid of the case. 
And when I am In class, with the case on the floor, I prefer to have 
the lid facing my desk. This permits easier access to notes, and 
keeps the books from falling out all over the floor. When I pick 
up the case after class, I usually forget to turn it back around. Sorry 
'bout that. 

Mr. Rea's first question was what really prompted this reply. 
In answer, let me say that I do not have any quarrel with anybody's 
right to dissent. It Is perfectly possible to dissent, and still love 
America — as many of our greatest statesmen have proven. I dls- 
sent from several of America's policies, myself. 

There Is a large difference, however, between someone who dls« 
sents because he loves his country, and a person who hates this coun- 
try and is out to destroy It. The two-bit totalitarian punks in such 
groups as the SDS, for instance, have made it clear by their state- 
ments and actions that they have no respect for other peoples* 
rl^ts (for instance, the right to go to class, or to seek a job with 
Dow Chemical Company.) The SDS-types are the ones whom, I wish, 
would leave the country. 

I like the traditional practicality of America. Andone main reason 
why I like It Isbecauselthelps keep idealistic tyrannists and '*human. 
Ists" out of power, while allowing for practical changes. Idealists 
don't like compromise. Idealists would rather run everything them- 
selves. But the Idealists do not realize that compromise played a 
major role in creating the greatestllbertariandocumentof all times; 
the U,S. Constitution. 

Life, like politics, is the art of the possible. It becomes the art 
of the ideal only when possible — and that's very seldom. 

America, with all Its faults and virtues, is largely a practical 
man's country; it Is not an Idealist's or a theorist's country. Even 
the great reform movements of America had to draw their strength 
from common men — from practical men — if they were to ac. 
complish anything. The idealistic tyrannists will, I hope, never rule 
America; because if they did, our government would likely collapse 
Into an impractical boondoggle, or a blood bath. 

America is not, never was, and probably never will be, perfect. 
It is only the best damned country In the world. And that, semper 
cum superbla, Is the idea behind the sign, 

I'm glad that Mr. Rea has been such an attentive watcher of my 
briefcase. Contrary to some rumors, though, the actions of my mind 
and body are not remote-controlled from within the case. It contains 
notes, books, paper, and (mostly) air. 


Christianity: A False Masl(? 

by Paul Hays 

It Is very encouraging to see such a confirmed capitalist as Mr, 
Kwaplnski admitting that he is not a Christian. I am happy to see that 
he Is not concealing his true feelings behind a false mask of Christ- 

It is this hiding of true Intentions that has created so much of the 
strife in this world. Nothing Is so phoney as a confirmed dog-eat-dog 
capitalist sending his kids, or going himself, to learn the generoslty- 
towards.your-fellow-man Ideas of Christ. The few men in today's 
business world who try to compromise their Christian beliefs with 
"their capitalist businesses are faced with monetary defeat at the hands 
of men who have put aside any Christian beliefs they may have had 
to start with. 

What is most frightening is when these men stand behind their 
facades of Christianity and shout profanities at a system of mutual 
sharing simitar to that practiced by the early Christians. Now, of 
course, I am not referring to the Soviet-Red China form of com- 
munism, but to the ideal fbrm. It is unfortunate that these people 
can see the many forms of democracy in the world, but only one form 
of communism. 

But if all capitalists could see this error, and, like Mr. Kwaplnski, 
admit this mistake, the problem of capitalism vs, communism could 
^be seen clearly and not through the polluted air of today. 

Perhaps with the help and guidanceof men like Mr. Kwaplnski, this 
could be realized. So BUI Kwaplnski, I take off my hat to you. 


Kingsmen Drop Two 

by Frank Nausin 
Well, just as things were beginning to look good for the Kings, 
men bad luck and some questionable officiating came along and de- 
railed the train. The Kingsmen dropped two games this week to 
UCR and Pomona, neither game should have been lost. This runs the 
overall record to 6 and 17 with 

three games left to play. 

On Friday night the Kings, 
men journeyed to Riverside the 
home of the Riverside 500 and 
poor officiating. The Kingsmen 
shot 43 in the first half from 
the floor and 100 from the free 
throw line, but still trailed by 
10 at the half. They also had one 
more field goal than did. River- 
side, The story was the same 
in the second half only the Kings- 
men shot 58 from the floor. 
Had an edge In field goals of 
5 but stUl lost by seven points. 
The answer of course was the 
men from Riverside shot many 
more free throws. The leading 
scorers for the Kingsmen wera 
Benson 20 potits, Iverson 17 
pts, MayCleid 13 pts, Clem 13 

Last Saturday night the Kings, 
men returned home to meet the 
Sagehens of Pomona. The Kings- 
men started cold but gradually 
fought their way back Into the 
game. With 13:17 left In the 
game the score read Pomona 12, 
Kingsmen 11. It was here the 
Kingsmen lost somethlngand gra- 
dually fell back to a 42 to 34 
half time disadvantage. The 
Kingsmen came roaring out for 
a doubt one of the poorest games 
looked like they were going to 
catch the Sagehens. But with 
14:54 left to go In the game 
the Sagehens built up a nine pt. 
lead and were never to be heed- 
ed agau. Final score was 85 to 
77, Again this game was highly 
questionable as far as officia- 
ting went. There were 56 fouls 
blown in the course of the game 
and four technicals and one play- 
er ejected from the game. It 
was unbelievable to hose who 
were there. It had to be without 

a doubt one of the poorest games 
ever referred In the Kingsmen 
gym. You really could not call 
what was being played a basket- 
ball game it was more like a 
YMCA foul shootingcontest. How. 
ever, In the process CLC may 
have found some new bench str- 
ength In the likes of Jon TTiomp. 
son and Randy Phillips who had 
12 and 11 pts respectively. Tim 
Iverson had 21 pts again for the 
second nl^t In a row but his 
effort was to go for naught as 
the rest of his team mates could 
not find the range. 

The Knaves this week split 
a pair losing to Riverside and 
beating Pomona, to run their rec- 
ord to 7 and 10. In the River- 
side game the score was 81 to 
63 in favor of Riverside. High 
for the Knaves was Jasper with 

16 pts., and Halverson with 12 
pts. Against Pomona the score 
read 83 to 58 Knaves and the 
hi^ men were Don Kessler with 

17 pts, Erickson with 15 pts, 
and Jasper with 12 pts. 

Next Week 

Next week the joumeytoAzusa 
on Friday to play the Cougars of 
Azusa Pacific. _ who beat the 
Kingsmen earlier 97 to 73, Then 
return home on Saturday night for 
the last home gameof the season 
against UC San Diego, who also 
hold a win over the Kingsmen by 
the score of 94 to 68. Coach 
Campbell's charges are going 
to have to prepare themselves 
a lot better mentally In order to 
upset these two teams. The Kings- 
men seemed to lose a lot of that 
spirit and zip that they had shot 
earlier in the past two weeks. 
Maybe they will regain their lost 
touch In time to salvage a couple 
more victories.

Artist Ulrico Schettini 

Due March 4 

Ulrico Schettini, who will be a campus visitor here at CLC during 
the week of March 4 - 7, Is an Italian, born in Calabria in 1932. 
He began law studies, but abandoned these at the age of sixteen, 
and entered the Institute of Art at Pesaro. 

After graduating In 1951 he 
moved to Rome to study at the 
Academy. One look at the work 
program led him to develop his 
own particular talents in his own 
way. He left, after a single day, 
preferring to work in the private 
studios of artists he admired. 

In 1956 he was awarded a 
French Government Scholarship 
which took him to Paris. The first 
Roberto Fasola Scholarship was 
awarded towards the end of this 
year, while his work was now 
sho'-vn for the first time in Amer- 
ica In the exhibition "Trends in 
Watercolor of Today" at the 
Brook lyn Museum in New York, 

Neither Rome nor Paris proved 
a satisfactory working milieu 
fbr Schettini, and he decided to 
try New York. But London, which 
he visited only "en route," un- 
expectedly met some unspecified 
demand. He arrived in the sum* 
mer of 1958, and has remained 
there ever since with increasing 

Schettini feels that, artistical- 
ly, 1956 was a decisive year. 
Before then he had already aban- 
doned representational work. He 
painted concentrated, simple ab- 
stract design, basically geome- 
tric and largely monochrome. In 
that year he worked on a series 
of graphic ejqjeriments entitled 
*'Search for a Monologue," which 
opened a road of visual explora- 
tions which he continues. At the 
age of twenty-four he had ar- 
rived at a graphic maturity in 
expressing and exploiting a fer- 
tile imagination. His large, black 
designs are superbly drawn, 
using a great variety of form and 
line. Apart from their intrinsic 
qualities, they are important as 
the store house of his imagery. 

Before taking residence in Lon- 
don, SchetUni had exhibited in 
Rome, Florence and Milan, In 
December of 1958 his first one- 
man show took place in London, 
and since then he has exhibited 
In Germany, Belgium, France, 
Sweden and Australia. 

In October of 1966 the Civic 
Art Gallery of Hull, England, 
held a major exhibition for which 
paintings executed by him from 
1958-1965 were gathered from 
private collectors, 

Mr. Schettini is a member of 
the "Amies de Gaudi," a Bar- 
celona society for the divulging 
and understanding of this archi- 
tect's work. 

While on this campus Mr. 
Schettini will execute a painting. 
The artist invites students and 
other Interested people to follow 
the process at all times, and en- 
courages questions and com* 

"Tomorrow Is In My Hands,** 
a survey of professional activity, 
is proposed as the subject of an 
informal gathering. Through this 
have an opportunity to fbllow 
step by step the work developed 
over the years, as well as to get 
acquainted with the thoughts and 
discipline which accompany the 
progression of artistic creation. 
An alternate topic which Mr, 
Schettini proposes is ''Percep- 
tion and Visuality," 

During the course of his visit, 
using carefully selected color 
slides, Mr. Schettini will give 
a public lecture on , , , (NOTE: 
Pleaselnsert xtiolce at one

A thirteen-week tour by Mr. 
Schettini to campuses in all parts 
of the United States has been 
planned by the Association of 
American Colleges' Arts Pro- 
gram. He has made three pre- 
vious tours under the same aus- 
pices. The Arts Program is a 
non-profit agency which has been 
serving higher education for 
more than thirty years, Itselects

Forum Devoted 
to Migrant Worker 

By Jerry Rea 

Last Thursday's Forum was 
devoted entirely to the plight and 
cause of the American migrant 
farm worker. Mr. Paul Espin- 
oza, a representative of the Unit- 
ed Farm Workers Union, was the 
special guest. 

Mr. Esplnoza presented a CBS 
film entitled "Harvest of Shame" 
which depicted the bleak 
existence of migratory farm 
workers in the United States. The 
film was devoted almost entirely 
to the black and white pickers 
on the Eastern Seaboard between 
Florida and New Jersey, but men. 
tlon was also made of the pre- 
dominantly Chicano workers In 
the Southwest. 

The average Income of the 
Florida - New Jersey migrants 
was $900 per year for 168 days 
of work when the film was made 
In the early Sixties. Since then 
the situation has not Improved. 
Conditions of housing, labor, 
food, transportation, and educa. 
tlon shown In the film Indicated 
sorrowfully that the migrant 
worker Is truly an "excluded 

After the film a short talk 
by Mr. Esplnoza and a discus- 
sion period followed. A petition 
circulated among the audience

The Philosopher-Thug 

Tlie Greek philosopher Plato, long ago, spoke of the concept of 
Philosopher-Kings. These people, Plato theorized, would be chosen 
during childhood for their superior characteristics, and then would 
be put through many years of education and refinement, until finally 
they would be chosen as the wise rulers of the City-State, 

Ever since Plato's time, and probably before It, education has 
been regarded as the great refiner — the process by which people 
would become cultivated, knowledgeable, and free from vulgarity. 

In large part, this view of education Is probably still correct. 
Today, however, we are also witnessing anotherprocess taking place 
in the institutions of higher learning. Not a process of refinement, but 
rather a process of brutailzation. Almost every time the news comes 
on, we hear of some group of latter-day Hitler Youth taking over a 
building, terrorizing their fellow students as well as college adminis- 
trators, setting fires on school property, shouting down speakers, 
disrupting classes, and generally having themselves a ball. Their 
hatred, which is ideologlcallyandphllosophicallymotlvated,isdlrect. 
ed primarily against the American common man — against his values, 
his customs, and his institutions. TTie common man, so the idealists 
tell us, has been thoroughly duped and taken in by the Establishment, 
The common man, as Eric Hoffer recenUy observed, is the idealists' 
"new monster," 

Tlie same general phenomenon of idealistic gangsterism is happen- 
ing around the world. For Instance, when Castro sends his stooges 
into Latin America, his main backbone of ideological support comes 
from students and intellectuals, rather than from common people. 
The bloody systems of Fascism and Nazism, similarly, were largely 
the handiwork of theorists and idealists, rather than common men. 
Hitler and Mussolini Iwth were rather proficient theorists in their 
own right — and what took place In their countries was what usually 
takes place in countries run by idealists: a blood bath. 

The young idealists who call America a *^lg heaven" are usually 
not describing America, but rathr the insides of their own minds. 
They take delight in comparing Governor Reagan or Dr. Hayakawa to 
Hitler, when the real Hitlers in our nation are the idealists them* 

The idealists despise, and look down on, the common man. 'Riey 
can't stand living in a country whose values and customs are largely 
determined by common men, and whose public officers are elected* 
by common men. And America is that ktndof country. No wonder the 
idealists hate America so much. They would rather be running 
America themselves — like Plato's Philosopher-King. But so far, 
the idealists have not seduced the American public, and it's not very 
likely that they ever will. 

If America was ever run by idealists Olke Tom Hayden, Eldridge 
Cleaver, or Herbert Marcuse) I believe at least three things would 
probably transpire; First, practical politics would disappear, since 
the idealists would become dictators. Second, the United States 
Government as it now stands would largely collapse, due to the ideal- 
ists' lack of ability to run it. Third, America would probably be 
engulfed in a sea of blood which would make that Santa Barbara oil 
slick look like a rain drop by comparison. 

There probably never was a Philosopher-King, except perhaps In 
Plato's imagination. But the totalitarian brutes andacademic savages 
In such groups as the SDS are for real. Og, the cave man, has picked 
up his club and gone to college. Make way for — The Philosopher-

I first saw him as I circled the block looking for a parking spot. 

He jumped out of a »69 Mustang, long brown hair flowing in the 
afternoon breeze, a comely brunette clinging as closely as the pin- 
striped bell bottoms he wore. He walked across the busy parking 
lot in long lanky strides, as though he had someplace Important to 

Which very well could be, for this was Erik Braan, lead guitarist 
for the high-flying Iron Butterfly. 

We met in his agent's office, on the next-to-top floor of the tallest 
office building on Ventura Boulevard. One plate glass wall looked out 
over the entire San Fernando Valley and a melange of miniature cars 
on a faraway freeway, 

Erik settled himself Into a black leather office chair and began to 
talk, about the group, about the new album, about himself. 

The Iron Butterfly started out In November of '67, playing a 
one-nighter at Hollywood High School. The gig was such a success 
that within two weeks the group had checked into the Strip's Whiskey 
a^o-Go, and within two more weeks the group had been signed to 
a major recording contract with Atco Records, 

TTielr first LP, •'Heavy" sold 10,000 copies in Los Angeles within 
the first week of release. A rapid succession of appearances at 
sek«ot«d-spots across the country sent sales soarlne. 

Tlieir second LP, "In.a.Gadda.da-Vida" was awarded a goldalbum 
lor sales over a million dollars almost Immediately upon release. 

"When we had finished recording the 17-minute version of In 
a^adda-da-Vida,'" Erik says, "we Just sat back and couldn't 
believe It. We only did one take. It was too good to improve on," 

One thing Erik does try to Improve on is his considerable musical 
talent. For someone who started out as a Classical violinist he has 
covered a lot of ground. He has written several of the songs that 
appeared on the last two albums and Is also at work writing a musical 
comedy. He also hopes one day to break out as a solo artist. 

But for now, his interests rest entirely with the Butterfly, 

"We try to do the unusual," he states. "Our chord progressions 
are totally different than any progressions that have been put In rock. 
We go in and out of different key variations Instead of following the 
usual blues pattern. We build the audience up to a point where they're 
expecting one thing and then we them another." 

A lot of the Interesting effects are created by playing Erik's jazz 
guitar background agalnstorganlst Doug Ingle'sClassical background. 

"For example, *My Mirage' on the second album Is a kind of 
Classical-symphonlc piece put into a rock vein." 

As for the sounds In the new album? 'Ht'U put sparks in your back- 
bone, man!" 

Most recently the group has had to turn down an offer to score 
Otto Preminger's latest film, "Skiddoo," but they were able to 
get some already.recorded numbers into "one of those AlP motor- 
cycle epics," (It is a peculiar thing, but no one 1 have ever talked 
to who worked on that picture could remember the name.) 

Immediately after this Interview was finished the Iron Butterfly 
left for New York on the first leg of another exhaustive nationwide 

This Friday, February 28, the Iron Butterny will be making a 
special appearance at Slmf Valley High School In Simi. A good deal 
of the material used by the group is audience-oriented and has to be 
heard in person to be believed. The evening looks to be "Heavy.''

Isn't it about time that we stop 
casting all variety of slurs at 
the proposed student - taught 
course in New Left thought? I 
mean, how long will the students 
continue to haul out the over- 
worn, ill-logical arguments for 
academic chastity which we con- 
demn In our elders. As a case 
in point, bear with me for a 
few paragraphs as 1 react to the 
epithets which appeared last week 
from the fount of the editor of 
the Mountclef Ceace Corp) 

You are told that students 
"should be permitted to have an 
active role in the classroom," 
Indeedl And who is to do the 
"permitting?" Is It not time that 
MISSION and start thinking for 
themselves? It's that simple, 
really: it is literally stupid to 
talk about "responsibility" for 
actions if students aren't taking 
action, making action. Creativ- 
ity, thinking, INNOVATING, and 
even risking failure at times, 
are these such frl^tenlng 

Before I lose the reader, 
though, let me assure you of a 
few things. This course now has 
{jieon lights, trumpet fanfare, 
applause?): (1) A faculty mod- 
erator to "direct" and to 
"grade" the student (2) A "bal- 
anced" syllabus, so you will BE 
TOLD ^ou won't need to find out 
for yourself) what Hayakawa, 
Reagan, Luce, and the Pigs have 
to say about the New Left, The 
reason for this Is so that YOU 
the warped thinkers of the Left, 
like Tom Hayden, Staughton Lynd 
C. Wright MUls, etc. . 

And to employ the same analogy 
which your editor usedlastweek, 
what really amazes me Is that 
you, like the animals of Orwell's 
ANIMAL FARM take this! Yes, 
you take it, and what's more, ap- 
pear to love iti And this Is what 
the Pigs are telling you, that you 
are NOT CAPABLE of fereting 
out the spectrum of Interpreta- 
tions there are on New Left 
thought, or Racism, orlnnerCity 
Problems, or, to the point, ANY- 

You are being "cultured" all 
right; protected and sheltered 
too. And as soon as some con- 
cerned students get together and 
say TO YOU, "Let's do some- 
thing creative, innovative, orig- 
inal; let's study something that 
could be important to us, some- 
thing we have had little or slant 
ed exposure to. Let's learn It 
ourselves, and do it so we can 
value our learning and not Just 
a letter grade. OK?" Yeah, 
GREAT, but what to study? The 
New Left? You mean those RAD. 
ICALS who will do ANYTHING 
for freedom, even cause unlaw-

Regents And Innovotion 

Perhaps one has heard the cry 
that those who govern this college 
are not really trying their best 
to improve the sum total of the 
educational value of four years 
at California Lutheran College, 
(If one has not heard this lately, 
he either has a Van Gogh com- 
plex in both ears, or there Is a 
clear passage-way through his 

TTiere is also the Idea that our 
"governors" might like to Im- 
prove CLC but are living in fear 
of the "wallet* rattlers" in our 
"ecclesiastical" constituency. 
Sounds sensible. 

Really, though, there Is an at- 
tempt to Improve CLC so that It 
can become a model Institution of 
Christian, liberal arts, higher 
education. Much conflict, how- 
ever, stems from violent dis- 
agreement of how to attain this 

Students are fed up with the 
idea that the college should serve 
"in loco parentis." (This is more 
aptly described as the college 
having a "mother complex".) 
Such an attitude discounts the 
credibility of the student's opin- 
ions and of the student's ability 
to have a significant general- 
policy role In the shaping of his 
current educational destiny and of 
the fate of Ms successors. 

But here at CLC some Innova- 
tion might be taking place. The 
Board of Regents Is voluntarily 
seeking student opinions on the 
problems and needed Improve- 
ments at CLC, Examples of this 
are apparent. Last Monday eve- 
ning, by request of the Regents, 
opinion s on the sub j ect were 
solicited from the students at 
large. This was accomplished by 
the Campus Poll, headed by Ron 
Schommer. Even beyond this the 
Regents' Student Affairs Com- 
mittee met last January 17 with 

the ASB Executive Cabinet and 
the Senate. On February 12, the 
Regents' Executive Committee 
met with members of CLC's 
Scholastic Honor Society and 
those students who were elected 
to "Who's Who" for this year. 
The Regent's Student Affairs 
Committee will meet again today, 
this time to talk with members 
of the Student Publications Com- 
mission, the Concert - Lecture 
Committee, the Academic Affairs 
Commission, and again with the 
ASB Executive Cabinet and Sen- 

Having met with the Regent's 
Executive Committee, I have 
Ibund some of its members to 
be really and deeply Interested 
in what the students would like to 
see as improvements at CLC. 
Tliis may be a great leap for- 
ward fto coin a phrase) for CLC. 
Here, the Board of Regents have 
openly asked the students what 
they would like to see improved. 
There are not too many places 
where such Regent action oc- 

This could be a really con- 
structive dialogue, but It could 
also become a facade. Attitudes 
toward these dialogues range 
from, "Gee you know, something 
constructive may re:iny be ac- 
complished," to, "t 1 • hum, 
nothing the students seek Is real- 
ly going to come about anyway." 

Whether the hopes of the stu- 
dents ever become a reality, or 
whether the product of this dia- 
logue is as fruitless as the status- 
quo - perpetuating channels that 
stifle progress today, remains to 
be seen. Whatever the outcome, 
however, the students must not 
sit back and paUently wait for 
something to happen, Sto.c pa- 
tlence ml^t very well be In- 
terpreted as pacified complac. 
ency and would result in further 
lack of progress,

At my vitriolic best, may I 
now venture that even more dam- 
aging, not to the course, but to 
the VERY INSTITUTION which we 
attend, is the fact thatSTUDENTS 
who know literally NOTHING 
about the New Left, and have not 
read anything but the L. A. TIMES 
on the matter, proclaim, as our 
editor did last week, that the 
"members of the New Left are 
not really sure what they stand 
pv," Or, that the New Left 

: :i*;':-. 

thought is an "unsophisticated, 
non-academic, non- intellectual 
philosophy of rapid change," 

I here present a challenge; 
Let any informed person who 
believes these charges, let that 
person sign up for the course 
and share his knowledge and 
viewpoint with all others who 
are interested enough to pursue 
the New Left on this academic- 
Intellectual plane of study. 

And for those who have read 
this far, I offer this: Isn't It

Dear President Olson: 

Two weeks ago an AWS Senate meeting was held 
in which three proposals for the abolition of 
dorm hours were presented. A number of women 
volunteered to compose a committee to look in- 
to the various aspects of the situation, spe- 
cifically the implementation of no hours and 
the reactions from parents and the constituency, 
Two days later the weekly Forum's concern was 
'Women Power' (or tne lack of it)at which time 
various aspects of the 'regulatory conduct' of 
CLC women were discussed. It was surprising 
that even some of the more 'conservative' stu- 
dents saw the necessity for employing other 
means if the present system of protocol was ex- 

A cooling off meeting was held soon after 
at which time the women who were concerned or- 
ganized to work with the AWS Senate. A mem- 
ber of the AWS Senate related that the Sen - 
ate was generally in favor of the abolition of 
dorm hours and that the committee on the hours 
was sending a letter to all parents to get 
their reactions. To expedite procedures the 
women at this meeting decided to take a verbal 
poll of the attitudes towards abolishing hours 
and to write the churchs that now support the 
college. This was done with the speed coming 
from beliefs in the objective. 

Another AWS Senate meeting was held this 
Tuesday night at which it was reported that 
the best implementation system for no hours 
would be one in which the guards now employed 
would open the dorm doors. A card system 
would be employed also where by each women ha- 
ving parental permission to live under this 
system would have a special stamp on her ID 
card, which would serve as her enterance tic- 
ket to the dorm. The letter was read that 
is to be sent to each woman's parents asking 
their reactions to no hours. These letters 
are to be given to each. woman to enable her to 
write an accompaning letter if she so desires. 

The hope of this "open letter' 
open communications which seem to 
severely hampered. 

In Sincerity,

It's Time To Get Involved 

by Gerald Rea 





Last week there appeared an 
article In this paper entitled 
•*Why Should Women?" I say 
BAH, why shouldn't they. You 
see, you girls are like sheep — 
you need to be led, you need 
someone to tell you which way is 
up and which way Is down. You 
have had your chance to prove 
yourselves once and you blew It; 
we would still be In Paradise If 
a woman hadn't acted on her own 
puny Initiative. 

You saythatyouarematureand 
are ready for responsibility, but 
you know that your supreme goal 
In life Is to catch a mate in 
hopes of having legal Intercourse. 
You say your minds are ready, 
but when the fruit of your collect- 
ive thinking can only produce a 
Slave Day, which Is appropriate 
for your sex, I say there's a sick 

You say "we women," when 
half of you know the bag you're 
in and love, want equality and the 
only thlngthatishamperingyouis 
prejudice. Prejudice Wowl Call 
it experience; behind every suc- 
cessful man there was a woman 
to hasten his downfall. 

Don't get me wrong, I dig you 
girls; just don't try to be some- 
thing you aren't — rational human 
beings — be content as slaves. 
After all, ignorance is bliss, 
isn't it? So don't say "we want 
freedom," when your whole phy. 
sical and mental make-up denies 
the privilege, 


This Saturday and Sunday all 
students AND faculty who are 
interested can "get involved" by 
petitioning aeainst the table srape 
policies of Safeway market in 

Thousand Oaks. The petition 
is national In circulation and 
reads as follows: 

'*We the undersigned support 
the striking grape workers In 
their non-violent effort to or- 
ganize and bargain with their 

In order to win their three- 
year . old struggle, the Farm 
Workers have been forced toboy-* 
cott all California table grapes. 
Various small chains andl 
Independent markets In Calif- 
ornia are giving their support to 
the workers by refusing to hand- 
le grapes, Safeway, the largest 
of the chains, has consistently 
supported the growers by con- 
tinuing to sell table grapes pick- 
ed by strikebreakers. 



Last Saturday eight Interested 
students, Including myself, petl- 
tloned from 1 to 3 PM and ob- 
tained approximately 5 5 sig- 
natures even though the "demon- 
stration" was not organized or 
announced. Public reaction was 
very good , except for a few in- 
stances which were more hilar- 
ious than disturbing (I was call- 
ed a "deadbeat" and other stu- 
dents were referred to as being 
"inhuman" or "anarchistic"). 
Tills weekend we hope to have 
enough people to inundate Safe- 
way and other shopping centers 
in Thousand Oaks. 

If you are uninformed as to 
the nature of the national grape 
boycott and the issues involved, 
please talk to me or the other 
students who will be available 
at dinner Friday, 

It seems to me that the grape 
boycott presents a golden oppor- 
tunity to do something for one's 
less fortunate brothers without 
danger of arrest, etc. As long 
as we follow certain antlcoercion 
regulations, the management of 
Safeway does not have the abil- 
ity to file a legitimate complaint. 
The petition applies only to ta- 
ble grapes and not to wine

Tlie professor, Frederick Grlf.

From the Heart of Lutheranity 

(Note: John Gufh Is CLC»s co- 
ordinator for next year's TALC 
student conference In MHtinapo. 
lis. Coordinators friin eachALC 
scnool mot there over Winter 
break, Feb. 14-16, to discuss the 
forthcoming conference and the 
results of this year's meeting. 
The following Is his report on 
this month's meeting.) 

As Western Airlines flight 501 
to Minneapolis slowly descended 
in its approach to the fabled Twin 
Cities I found it quite difficult 
to picture the type of people I 
would meet in this strange world. 
To be sure, I had already met 
some of Its more noted Luther- 
an denizens, but I wasn't really 
ready for the culture shock which 
would follow. 

The morning papers in the air- 
port were blaring the news of 
campus revolt at the U. of Wis- 
consin not too far away. How In- 
significant and trivial it seemed 
that I, who have a not favorable 
impression of such conferences, 
was appointed to meet represen. 
tatives of other Lutheran schools 
to discuss approaches to the 
"crisis in the suburbs." As a 
student, the "crisis" seemed 
much closer to me than the su- 

Tlie weather was kind enough to 
warm up to 20 degrees, but the 
presence of Superamerica gas 
stations and weather*beaten Hum- 
phrey billboards cautioned me: 
**Don't expect too much from all 

Hie Minneapolis bus station 
is not the place to be If you wear 
your hair long, I mean real long, 
not Ivy league early-Beatlish 
long, and If your beard Is not as 
neat asOmarSharrif'smustache. 
People ask with their eyes: "So 
what are you trying to prove?" 
Many people. And you Just smile 
or give the "defiant young anar- 
chist" look to uphold appear- 

Most of the trip to St. OlaJ 
was spent in conversation with 
a young Pakistani girl who had 
"■Just been on the U, of Wisconsin 
campus where she had witnessed 
the clubbing of two young maleand 
one female students (unarmed) by 
National Guardsmen called up 
by Governor Knowles. I wonder- 
ed If the other coordinators would 
share my concern for these stu- 
dents and my admiration of their 
cause. Would they? 

I arrived. St. Olai; Hke most 
of the Northern Mid-west, cold, 
snowed-ln, mostly built of brick. 
Conducive to fraternity fires, 
drinking parties, and as little 
movement as possible. Solid, 
aged, unmoving. Were these first 
impressions true? To a large 
degree, I found they were. 

And I mean, It's nut just St. 
Olaf, That first day the coordi- 
nators talked to each other about 
their own particular campuses 
and campus problems. There are 
few problems, it would seem. If 
you read the publicity materials, 
or poll the faculties, or even If 
one would poll the various stu- 
dent bodies. Why should there 

By John Guth 

be problems on these rather Idyl- 
lic centers for Christian Liberal 
Arts Ed? I mean, Concordia just 
got campus dancing three weeks 
ago (exceptions: Homecoming and 
Prom). And it looks like the St, 
Olaf Student Union will begin to 
sell cigarettes just as soon as 
the Surgeon General's report on 
smoking is Invalidated by the 
Trade Commission (under pres- 
sure from R.J. Reynolds, et al). 

St. Olaf, Capitol, Luther, Con. 
cordia, Augsburg — schools with 
twice as many students as CLC, 
but less than a third as many 
Black students goto these places, 
or, are permitted there. These 
Black students face tremendous 
odds in trying to get tliemselves 
together and In relating to an edu- 
cation that contains nothlngwhich 
speaks to their own identity. Is 
it any wonder that these Lutheran 
schools do not offer more than a 
singular, ill-motivated "black 
culture" course? After all, even 
the White Anglo-Saxon Protest- 
and mentality recognizes the em- 
barrassment which would ensue 
should ALC Institutions **fall be- 
hind" their secular brothers in 
educational "innovation," 

So we discussed all this and 
more, with these conclusions: 
0) the "inner" colleges, those 
closest to Minneapolis, are the 
deadest, and the most frustrated, 
while the outer campuses, CLC, 
Texas LC, Capitol, and Concor- 
dia, are most alive, due to acti- 
vity of Black students, white acti- 
vists, and younger faculty (reten- 
tion of these young faculty Is a 
problem common to outer cam- 
puses); (Z) the city workshop 
model for TALC conferences, the 
"confrontation plan," was a bust 
this year and a new approach Is 
needed which centers Introspect- 
Ively on our own campuses. ITie 
resolutions of the last conference 
were found to be seriously taken 
only at campuses wehre action 
in the target areas would have 
been taken anyway; (3) Next 
year's topic will not be the Su- 
burblan Crisis, but will take the 
fbrm of restructuring the TALC 
conference itself. The TALC con- 
ference as we know it shall never 
be again: in Its place we announce 
the formatlonof the American Lu- 
theran Student Union, and the 
creation of the position to be 
called "travelling secretary" to 
the campuses. Next yearwe shall 
take an introspective look at our 
own Institutions and ask: Why 
do we have the problems that we 
do and how can we solve them? 

TALC is dead. ALSU lives. The 
only problem the coordinators 
now fiice Is to convince the stu- 
dents that this not only IS the 
case, but MUST BE our solution. 

The airport was deserted at 2 
a,m, I sipped a cup of coffee as 
I waited for the call to board my 
flight to LAX. I asked myself 
again and again, what would 
the fate of our proposal be? 
Would we, like the Wisconsin stu- 
dents, be clubbed tothegroundby 
an establishment of students and 
faculty and administrators who

might view our call to an active 
solution of the problems we see 
as a threatening portent of things 
to come? 

Sad prophets were we, creat. 
Ing, charting a course for the 
journey that must be taken: you, 
too, must see that this is the 
course to take. 

The Revolution's 
Coming of Age: 
A Prognosis 

By Orin Wise 

Our oft-bewailed age of unrest, 
seen by some as the awkard trans- 
itional period heralding the New 
Jerusalem and reviled by others 
as the product of a chaotic con- 
splracy, seeking to destroy all 
that is meet and good In our best 
of nations in its finest hour, will 
soon find an end in the radical 
transformation of the undergrad- 
Ing superstructure of a moribund 
past. The multitude of mass 
movements that so disconcert the 
ruling relics of a past age, our 
Reagans and Rafferties, are not 
disjointed in their efforts; 
neither are they united by any 
alleged seditious conspiracy of 
a communist anti-Chrtst, The 
coincidence of Columbia, Sor- 
bonne and Mexico City should dis- 
pel the illusion that the present 
radicalism In a cancerous out- 
growth of Issues like Vietnam and 
racism. These protests are par- 
ticular manifestations of far 
deeper forces provoking mass ac- 
tions in diverse regions of the 
capitalist sector. The control of 
the capitalist mentality seeks to 
direct all human resources into 
the achievement of some elusive 
goal defined by an anonymous 
oligarchy of self-satisfied groups 
and individuals who reap the bene- 
fits of the suppression cf sub- 
servient, servile humanly. For 
example, the admitted use of our 
colleges and universities is to 
shape, train and funnel manpow- 
er for the needs of the American 
capitalist empire. 

The strategy of the capitalist 
establishment is to destroy the 
general movement of reform by 
isolating the little groups by ap- 
peasement, giving them their tok- 
en text-tx)oks or late leave, but 
never freedom. To overcome the 
artificial division of the masses, 
the radical elements within the 
society must bypass the super- 
ficial sectioning of their ener- 
gies and direct their power at 
the destruction of the monolith 
that seeks to suffocate them. If 
the unification of the opporessed 
is achieved, the young will join 
with the blacks, browns, and yel- 
lows and emerge from their ghet- 
tos, whether behind university 
walls or in Oxnard or Harlem, 
to join in the fight against the 
capitalist behemoth. We mustnot 

fear the legendary strength of 
our enemy, a myth perpetuated 
by the story-txjok nonsense typi- 
fied by Ayn Rand and her feudal 
mentality: the bulwark of capi- 
talism Is not strong through any 
inherent potency of Its precepts; 
It rather rests on rust. The cor- 
rosive stagnancy of capitalism 
can be corrected only by the vio- 
lent jarring of Its structure until 
it falls, smothering its founda- 

It is no longer a time for the 
meek; the meeks' inheritance 
will come when, as ashes, they 
submit to being ground to dust, 
and finally share substantially 
with the barrenness of the earth 
they would not accept In life. VVe 
cannot rest content with the 
empty, restrictive structure 
which enslaves man to the prod- 
ucts of his labor, Man can only 
be free, when the present eco- 
nomic and social system Is de- 
stroyed. Now let us unite and get 
to the business of its destruction. 

Dean Gangsei , fellow administrators; 

Before I can reply to your recent challenge 
regarding substantiation of my statements at 
the forum of "the New Left" course, I feel it 
is imparative that a few issues which the ad- 
ministration has raised in its "open letter" 
to the student body of CLC (Feb. 24, 1969) be 
clarified. I must confess that I do not un- 
derstand what you are talking about in that 

I would appreciate if therefore if you would 
document your statements so that there might 
be a common understanding and a common know- 
ledge of what the situation is^ The statements 
which are in dire need of documentation are 

l)What exactly are the rumors concerning 
the proposing of the use of disruptive tactics 
and pressures? 

2)What is the precise "understanding" which 
this institution has of itself? 

3)In what way is housing {and the way which 
we live in it)a part of a concept of education? 

4)What line o*" reasoning enables one to as- 
sume that "considerations for others who live 
in our housing..." (i.e. those who do not want 
to be regimented by a system of "women's hours") 
are being taken seriously under the status quo? 

5)Exactly what "major groups" are concerned 
•when one wishes to see a change brought about 
at CLC? Furthermore, at what time(if ever) is 
the decision of these major groups tentamount 
to suppression? 

6)What is the"commitment to growth and change^ 
at this college"? Could realized examples of 
this commitment be given? 

Under the ' 
letter I see 

therefore" clause of your open 
three areas which need clarifi- 

1) In your first "be it known" what types of 
student conduct "directly and significantly" 
interferes with CLC's responsibility of insur - 
ing everyone's rights to pursue their educational 
objectives? What are these universal rights? 
How does California Lutheran College view the 
educational objectives ;what are these objectives 
in your opinion? 

2)In your second clause I would like to know 
what conduct on the part of students interferes 
with the subsidiary responsibilities which CLC 
has? Does it include non-violent, silent pro- 
test which does not disrupt orderly proceedings 
of the institution? It would seem the word " 
"interferes" is ambiguous here. 

3) In your third statement under this "there- 
fore" clause, what are the qualities of and 
who, in the last analyses, judges students who 
are unfit to remain here at CLC. 

In conclusion I would like to know the basis 
for the statement(be it a campus poll or other- 
wise) "that the overwhelming climate of this 
college and the overwhelming attitude of its 
students is wholesome and constructive."? 

The simple purpose of this letter is to be 
sure that e^ery student realizes the problems 
at Califormia Lutheran College.

TALC Coordinotors Report 

CLC Hosts A.G.U. Orchestra 

We the coordinators of the 
1969 ALC Student Conference, 
feeling the need to move Into a 
more actlon-orlented emphasis 
tor the ALC Student Conference, 
recommend certain structural 
changes be undertaken. We feel 
that the time has come for stu- 
dents to assert themselves In a 
more active role in changing so. 
clety. TTiere are many organs 
which students can use to effect 
change. One of these organs Is 
the ALC Student Conference. In 
the past, the orientation of the 
conference has been toward "con- 
frontations" in order that we, 
as students, can become aware 
of the problems in our society. 
While this may still be neces- 
^ sary, time has shown that our 
present structures have not prov- 
en themselves to be conducive 
to produce the action which should 
proceed from this awareness. 
For this reason we call for the 
reformation of the ALC Student 
Conference; we abolish Its name 
and orientation, and do hereby 
create the American Lutheran 
Student Union (ALSU). 

As Christians we must InevlU 
ably be Involved within the so- 
ciety of which we are a part. 
Our actions must assume three 
dimensions: (1) Action as Inno- 
vatlon within and beyond the 
classroom, (2) Action as the re. 
education of society, and (3) Ac- 
tion as a search for Christian 
style and committment. 

As students at church-related 
colleges, we have a duty to try 
to affect the Institutions of the 
Church to make them more sen- 
sitive to the needs of society, 
.^We are called to be a creative

As citizens and Christians, we 
must speak to the structures 
which govern our society. We 
are called to make the political 
process sensitive to the needs 
of all elements of society. 

As students and Christians, 
we have a duty to our education- 
al Institutions to make them more 
sensitive to the needs of the stu. 
dents — both educational and per- 
sonal. Particularly since we are 
from Institutions with certain 
common characteristics, we 

must work together to solve com- 
mon problems. 

To bring action to bear in 
these concerns, we must design 
new structures which we can 
use as our aew tools. (1) In 
designing these new tools, we 
must first look at those areas 
of common concern for all of 
our colleges and find ways in 
which we can work together. 
(Z) We also realize that there 
are certain problems in which 
each of our campuses have a 
special Interest. These are areas 
in which each campus might spec- 

(3) To affect society we must 
go beyond the confines of our 
campuses. We must do this in an 
educative manner, transmitting 
our concerns to the church, to 
society, and to our colleges them- 
selves. (4) We can also involve 
ourselves In direct action for 
specific changes in specific in- 
stitutions. (5) Finally, we must 
work toward finding new forms 
and new issues for the future. 
Since much of the focus of 
ALSU will be national in scope, 
it Is necessary that some per- 
son (s) be designated by the 
ALSU to communicate and coor- 
dinate the actions of the vari- 
ous campuses, one to the other. 
We feel that the person re- 
sponsible tor this job should 
be a full-time traveling secre- 
tary who would work with all 
of the campuses and coordinate 
the work for the ALSU. Tlie 
traveling secretary would also 
be the Uason with the Youth 
Division of the American Luth. 
eran Church. 

On the various campuses the 
work of ALSU will be coordinat- 
ed by a campus coordinator who 
wUl act as ALSU's Uason with 
the student governments and stu. 
dent congregations of the vari- 
ous campuses. He will also be 
responsible for seeing that struc- 
tures for student action are cre- 
ated on each campus If they do 
not already exist. 

"Hie coordinators of the 1969 
American Lutheran Church Shi- 
dent Conference urge each cam- 
pus government to proceed with 
the consideration of an Amer- 
ican Lutheran Student Union as 
a matter of considerable Import- 
ance, deserving prompt and serl.

Women vs. Hours 

Tuesday night, Feb. 18th, a 
group of women Interested In a 
change In the hours system met In 
the C,U.B, The women discussed 
what they could do In helping A WS 
Senate find out the reaction of 
people outside of CLC to dropping 
the hours for women. The women 
at the meeting were In favor of 
having no hours for women, ex. 
cept for first quarter freshmen. 
The major point of the meeting 
was to get support In writing let- 
ters to pastors, churches sup- 
porting the school, and to parents. 
It was also emphasized that any 
women that are In favor of drop, 
ping the hours must be willing to 
attend these meetings and not 
Just wait and hope a resolution 
will be passed. Any women that 
have not been contacted are urg- 
ed to write to their parents and 
pastor about the proposed change 
and then have them write to the 
college expressing their ideas,

Thirty-five women and two men attended the 
meeting held to discuss women's hours last 
Tuesday in the CUB.

Why This Philosophy? 

On this campus there has been 
division among students and 
faculty in beliefs, action, and res- 
ponse with regard to the course 
entitled "The New Philosophy of 
the Polls," It appears through 
Informal conversation with 
others and my own beliefs 
that there are valid and logical 
arguments on both sides of the 
Issue: Should a course such as 
the "New Philosophy of the 
Polls" be offered at CLC? 

To begin with, It is necessary 
to look at the goals and object- 
ives underlying this course. Aca- 
demic pursuit, greater participa- 
tion in the college life and class- 
room, students teaching each 
other, re-opening closed avenues 
of thought, and a sense of creati> 
vlty and self-awareness seem to 
exemplify the direction of the 
course; creativity In developing 
new modes directed at gaing crl» 
teria, self-awareness to deal with 
that Information so that it be- 
comes applicable to our lives. 
While many of our present 
classes hold and enact several or 
all of the above goals, many 
others lack creativity and self- 
awareness. Facts are merely 
presented with no time allowed 
for group participation, class 
response, or intelligent exchange 
of Ideas for further insight be- 
yong the scope of our own ex. 
perlence. Many of us seem to be 
cau^t in the dilemma of select- 
ing material or courses that 
merely reenforce our present 
positions rather than those that 
challenge those positions. We 
seem to be ground in tradition 
which will not change or con- 
sider the new Ideas and phllo* 
sophles which will finally chal- 
lenge that tradition. 

Tradition, however, Is not 
bad in Itself. It is when one 
knows the direction, goal and 
means of arriving, that tradi- 
tion must submit to change Oi 
progress Is a possible result of 
that change). When the change 
has no practical value, it can 
be considered Invalid, 

What about those who are not 
mature enough or feel that they 
do not have the knowledge to Judge 
between conflicting ideas? Pos- 
sibly a course such as the "New 
Philosophy of the Polls" Is not 
for these people. The course is 
outlined as an elective course 
for those desiring more know- 
ledge of the occurences deveU 

oping atjout them, lliose who are 
willing and have time to broad- 
en their Intellect and wisdom will 
undoubtedly be found in this 
course; those seeking to know 
and attempting to gain valid 
Judgements beyond their pre- 
judices. Prejudice and fear of- 
ten grow from ignorance; per- 
haps Ignorance from Isolation, 
If we are to remain isolated in 
an area with great reluctance to 
change, we may view ourselves as 
history has viewed China. The 
"great wall" of China, oncebullt, 
isolated China; the world by- 
passed It. Ignorance can also 
breed false ideas. White America 
should have learned by now that 
the black man Is not biologically 
Inferior, He remains Inferior be 
cause of White America's Igno- 
ranee and reluctance to change. 
We can't risk remaining Ignorant 
to the challenge of the New Left 
for fear that this Ignorance may 
give way to prejudice and fear; 
prejudice and fear that leaves 
us helpless In any attempt to 
deal with this philosophy. 

Two major questions Involved 
In this course deal with accredl- 
tation and money for the con- 
tinuance of this school. Both of 
these can be dealt with by once 
again going to the goals and pur- 
poses for the course. We are not 
being Indoctrinated with subver- 
sive propaganda or duped with 
anti«American slogans. We are 
pursuing goals which will aid In 
determining our future and pos- 
sibly thefurtherawakenlngof this 
college and community to the Is- 
sues of our day. If our education 
and further lives are to be con- 
trolled by members outside the 
college community now, are we 
not, to some degree, being sub- 
jected to teaching methods which 
are outmoded? Where is the faith 
of those people In our society who 
are already secure? Are they 
afraid to hear their children 
who have grown up and become 
college students? TTie problem 
lies in the breakdown of communl- 
cation and the polarization of phi- 
losophies In all areas within our 
society. We must be willing to 
talk but be sure that we listen. 
To build walls and never attempt 
to tear them down or climb over 
them leaves two fields separated 
until fear hinders us from peek- 
ing over It all. If we are lucky 
enough to grow curious, It is 
pitiful when society has burned 
all of the ladders, stolen the 
sledge hammers, or worse yet, 
told us that nothing exists on the 
other side of the wall.

Students, Faculty 
Discuss Pass-Fail 

By Kerry Denman 

Newly Instituted this year, 
CLC's pass-fall system has caus- 
ed considerable confusion among 
students. Last Wednesday, a 
special meeting was called in 
the gym during cnapel lime, 
inviting students and faculty to 
discuss the hang-ups of this sys- 
tem. Dr. Tseng presided over 
the meeting which opened with an 
explanation of the pass-fall sys- 
tem by Mrs. Johnson, the re^s- 

The pass - fall grade was 
defined by Mrs, Johnson as a 
"C" or better letter grade. It 
was Instituted to enable stu- 
dents to experiment in non • 
major classes. The qualifica- 
tion of "C" or better enables 
the grade to be transferable to 
most other institutions. Students 
are allowed to take four classes 
on pass-fail. If the student falls 
the class, It Is not counted against 
him; he simply receives no grade. 

Dr. Kuethe reported on apass* 
fail conference he attended and 
commented on some of the pro- 
blems Pomona and Claremont, 
who have extensively used this 
system, have encountered. Fac- 
ulty representing the schools said 
that their system, which allowed 
a "D" or better to be passing, 
gave students an excuse to be 
lazy and sluff off. In order to 
give students a genuine exposure 
to classes, the requirement for 
a pass was changed to "C" or 

"Rie question was raised as to 
what happens to a student who 
takes pass-fail courses and later 
changes his major so that he 
needs those particular courses 
for his major. Mrs. Johnson re- 
sponded that she really didn't 
know bow such a. situation would 
be handled. 

Willie Ware supplied the main 
source of dialog on the system. 
He called the present pass-fall 
system of grading as a unit be- 
tween the faculty and the admin- 
istration, not between the faculty 
and the student. The faculty as- 
signs a grade and the adminls- 
tratlon decides if the grade Is 
passing, Hius comes the prob- 
lem If a student receives a "D" 
grade as passing and the admin- 
istration, if the student is taking 
the class on, flunks 
the student. Willie called this a 
direct contradiction, Dr, Anne 
Nelson responded to Willie's 
challenge by saying that the "D" 
grade Is unsatisfactory since it 
Is a grade In Isolation and there- 
fore the administration Is jus- 
tified in flunking the students 
with a "D" grade. Dr, Evensen 
low ttve group that faculty didn't 
want to know which students were 
taking classes on pass-fall be- 
cause of the possibility of that 
fact Influencing their grading of 
that student. 

A proposal was distributed by 
the CLC Scholastic Honor Socle^ 
concerning a technical pass-fall 
system, but time ran out before 
the measure could be discussed. 

I Had A Dream? 

I had a dream the other day 
disturbing me, and I would like 
mind by telling you. 

that had been 
to get off my 

Hillagp iBriar 


PHONE ■49S-B1 19 

As I wad day-dreaming in the Coffee Shop it 
seemed as though I heard a voice calling me to 
the telephone. Picking up the receiver, I was 
greeted with the Dean of Women's icy tones, 
"Could you come to my office immediately. It 
was not a question. "Of course, I'U be right 
there," I replied with curiosity, and was on 
my way. 

When I arrived at the office, I saw one of 
the women leaders on the campus coming out of 
the office. She smiled and said "Hello" as I 
passed. When I entered the room;the Dean of Wo- 
men was stationed at her desk. On a chair in 
the CO rner sat the Dean of Students with sev- 
eral papers in his hands. He addressed me 
first, reading off of a long list of fantastic 
charges against me. Among them were: 1) By 
writing a resolution to abolish women's hours 
I had polarized the campus, making calm con - 
sideration of the proposed change impossilbe ; 

2) I had attempted to destroy the democratic 
process of Student Government by introducing 
the resolution first to ASB Senate for their 
opinion, thereby eliminating the need for wo- 
men's Senate to vote on the proposal, and, in 
fact eliminating the need forWomen's Senate ; 

3) I was further attempting to destroy the cam- 
pus by means of a riot (under the guise of a 
sit-in before Women's Senate) in order to pres^ ,^ 
sure Women's Senate into passing the resolution; 
and 4) I and my flunkies were harassing the 
Women's leader (the girl who smiled and said 
"Hello" as I walked in the officeOto the point 
of a nervous breakdown with our questions , 
concerning the action (if any) being taken by 
Womea's Senate on the resolution, cTy 

I was stunned. It was hard to accept the 
fact that such condemnation had come from one 
simple proposal for change on the campus. 
Trae, I and an interested group of women stu- 
dents ahd drawn up the resolution. However, 
the rest of the charges were completely beyond 
my realm of knowledge and even conception. I 
had no flunkies, and I myself had spoken very 
little to the women's leader other that asking 
her to put the resolution on the Senate Agenda. 
I knew of no riot, sit-in, 
that one would occur. I did 
olution to Senate, but since it did happen I 
saw little harm in their expressing their ap- 
proval of the resolution. I also saw little 
possibility of such a small issue polarizing 
the campus unless the voting upon the resolution 
was unjustifiable postponed. I confessed my 
ignorance of the charges and the Dean of Womenc 
answered my statement thusly: even though I 
had not directly partipated in these scandlous 
activities, the sheer fact that I instigated 
the resolution confirmed that I should be the 
one held responsible for any unseemly action 
regarding the resolution. Furthermore, if dem- 
onstration or pressure tactics were employed 
on the campus, the administration would be 
forced to refuse to listen to any proposal for 
change even if the majority of students desired 
such change. 

With this utlimation my dream ended. And I 
must admit that the memory of my Kangaroo Trial 
and the subsequent threats haunt me still. And 
I have doubts, too, whether or not rny deeam 
was merely that--a dream— because I received 
today a communication from the President of my 
college entitled "An Open Letter to the Stud- 
ents of CLC" which indicated that perhaps such 
a Kangaroo Court could exist at CLC with even 
worse results than those in my dream for a stu- 
dent who pro posed 
dent who proposed change.

Matmen Take Third 

NAIA Title 

By Bruce Wilcox 

Last Saturday the CLC Klngsmen wrestling team successftilly 
defended their NAIA District ni Championship In the greatest 
exhibition of skill, desire and determination any team anywhere 
has ever shown. Coming off of 
BIOLA Invitational, the Kings, 
men showed what makes a cham- 
pion by bouncing back to take the 
victory when It really counted, 
A champion is at his greatest 
under pressure and the Kings- 
men have a team of champions, 
• In a tournament that couldn't 
have been more exciting had It 
been planned, the Klngsmen won 
98*97 in what became a dual meet 
with a tremendous group of com- 
petitors from BIOLA, 

In a one point victory, every 
match In prelims, consoUation, 
and finals is vital. Every mem- 
ber of the team did his part for 
the team victory. The terrific 
closeness of the tourney was 
evident when, with only the con- 
solation finals and finals left, 
the score was deadlocked 77-77, 
each team having 3 men in con- 
solations and 6 in the finals. 
From that point on, the lead 
see-sawed until the last match. 


a poor fifth place showing at the 

off with the win. BIOLA had men 
at 160 and 177 lbs. that both 
won their matches, so BIOLA 
took a 3-point lead with only the 
heavyweight match left. This put 
the whole tournament on Rex 
Baumgartner's shoulders. A vic- 
tory by decision would tie the 
score but the team needed the pin 
to win. Rex's opponent, a tou^, 
quick heavyweight from U.C. San 
Diego, was no easy match, but 
Rex had never failed when the 
team needed him. Knowing he had 
to go for the fall. Rex was gun- 
ning from the start and early 
in the second period the referee's 
hand hit the mat signaling the pin 
and the victory for Rex and the 
entire team. Rex came through 
In the clutch as he has every 
time the team needed him in the 
last four years. It was a fitting 
ending to a great year, one in 
which the Klngsmen had a fine 
12-3-1 record and their third

in the first period. It was one - — — 
of four pins Raul earned hi his 
five matches, taking athlrdplace 
in the district. Bob Bonner, at 
167 lbs., lost a tou^ decision 
but picked up fourth In the dis- 
trict. Then, in the surprise of 
the tournament, Ray Shadid bat- 
tled to a tie In regular time and 
won a 5.2 overtime decision. 
The win gave him a third place 
which is not bad for a man who 
had only been out about a week. 
His win sparked the other Kings- 
men who were Ji the finals. 
Final matches were tense. 
BIOLA took the 115-lb. weight 
class. Then at 123 lbs. Chuck 
LaGamma faced the man who 
beat him last year for the dis- 
trict championship, BIOLA'sBob 
Tobey. This time Chuck was 
unbeatable, mastering Tobey In a 
4-0 flawless performance. At 130 
lbs. Chuck Branham faced 
BIOLA's star performer Chris 
Davis. But Branham hung tough, 
despite a lump on his forehead, 
and pulled off a 4-3 victory. 
This was a crucial match. Jim 
Day, weighing 137 lbs., took a 
third straight championship for 
CLC_, winning a strong 12-4 de- 
cision. At 145 lbs,, freshmen 
Ken Wright who wrestled strong- 
ly in all his matches wrestled a 
close match before his opponent 
cradled him for the fall. Senior 
Ken Olson came through at 152 
lbs. with a 7-5 decision over 
an opponent from Pasadena who 
had beaten him the week before. 
Coach Bob Canter helped Olson 
In practice on strategy that paid 

NSA Fights 

End of Student Fares 

Washington, D.C.—The United 
States National Student As- 
sociation O^SA) will fight the rec- 
ommendations of a Civil Aero- 
nautlcs Board (CAB) examiner 
calling for the abolition of youth 
lares as **unjustly discrimina- 
tory," and has retained legal 
counsel to prepare briefs andoral 
arguments for presentation be- 
fore the CAB, The announcement 
of NSA's action came from Ser- 
vices Division director Alan C. 
Handell, who noted that at pre- 
sent the Association is the only 
group representing student users 
of the airline youth fare which 
will make arguments before the 
Federal t>oard. 

Abolition of youth fares Is being 
sought by a number of bus 
companies. NSA will argue that 
In view of the educational, social, 
economic, and cultural benefits 
afforded by the youth feres and 
young adult fares, the fares 
should not be cancelled. Writ- 
ten arguments will be presented 
to the CAB by February 26. Oral 
arguments will be made at a later 
date. NSA is being represented 
by the Washington law firm of 
Koteen and Burt, who are ex- 
perts in air fare matters. Handell 
urged that students interested In 
retaining youth fares contact him 
at USNSA, 2115 S. Street, N, W., 
Washington , D.C. 20008. 

Klngsmen Lose Two More 


The long season Is drawing to a close. The Klngsmen have but 
Just one more game to play. Last week the Klngsmen lost two games, 
one game to Azusa Pacific and the other to the University of Call- 
fbmia at San Diego. The Klngsmen overall record is now 6 and 19 

one of 

in the 


A certain CLC prof, found 
students, shortly after class, 
room brushing his teeth: 

"I've heard of brushing your teeth 
after every meal, but after every class?" 
inquired the professor-- 

To which the student retorted: "Look, 
if you had to swallow the stuff we have to 

with one game left against Pasa- 
dena College. 

Friday night's game was a 
question of getting beat by a bet- 
ter team In that team's own gym. 
Playing in a band box they call 
a gym at Azusa the Klngsmen 
shot well, and scored 89 points 
usually enough to win but It was 
all for naught as the Cougars 
from Azusa scored 107 points 
to soundly thump the home town 
heroes. The scoring for the 
Klngsmen went like this; Benson 
had 24 pts. Mayfleld 17 pts. 
Iverson 15 pts. and Schroder had 
9 pts. Numerous subs rounded 
out the scoring for the Klngsmen 
as Coach Campbell emptied his 
bench giving a lot of his younger 
players some valuable experi- 
ence. ' 

On Saturday afternoon the 
Klngsmen met the Tritons of 
UCSD in the Kingsmen's gym. 
The Klngsmen without the serv- 
ices of tT*o starters, Tim Iver- 
son had hurt his ankle In the 
game against Azusa and Mike 
Majrfield who had to take the 
Graduate Record Exam. Despite 
these handicaps Jon Thompson 
and Ralph Lucas filled in ad- 
mirably, and the Kingmen played 
Inspired ball giving the Tritons 
a real run for the money In the 
first half. However, the rou^ 
and tumble Tritons were to pre- 
vail In big fashion In the second 
half. If any of you had seen the 
football game last fall against 
UCSD, you would wonder why 
these fellows on the basketball 
team for UCSD had not gone out 
for football, the game was marred 
by many pushing and elbow 
throwing incidents and the some- 
what poor sportsmanship of the 

Tritons. The scoring for the 
Klngsmen went like this; Ben- 
son had 21 pts., Thompson had 
14 pts., Lucas 12 pts., 
Schroeder 10 pts. The Klngsmen 
put out vallently but without Iver- 
son and Mayfield they lacked a 
little In scoring punch and es- 
pecially In rebounding. 


The Knaves ran their record 
to 9 and 10 with two wins this 
week. They beat Azusa on Friday 
and In an overtime they edge 
UCSD frosh 92 to 90. It was a 
thrilling contest on Saturday as 
the Knaves built up as much as 
a 14 pt. lead only to see It 
dwindle at the end of the reg- 
ulation play. In overtime Klven 
McGlrr came off the bench to hit 
some very Important free throws. 
In the game the Knaves got some 
stirring performances from 
Steve Jasper who hit 37 pts., 
and Ralph Lucas who canned 22 
pts., Ed Halverson hit double fig- 
ures with 10 pts. and Ed Stllllan 
and Wayne Erlckson weresupurb 
on the boards. The Knaves also 
have one game remaining that 
against Pasadena. 

The Kingsmen will be looking 
to end the season on a positive 
note as they meet Pasadena on 
Tuesday night. This season has 
been an improvement over last 
year and there have been some 
very good things happen. Most 
certainly the Kingsmen have not 
had a great season, but what has 
been learned this year Is going 
to be of tremendous help next

Staiag 17 To Be Staged 

Ihe Drama Club of CLC has 
widened the scope of its pro- 
ductlons. This Friday and Satur- 
day, Staiag 17, a comedy-drama 
^of American prisoners In a Ger- 
'man concentration camp,lsbeing 
staged. Being a neophyte thes- 
plan myself, I can say little ex. 
cept that Hollywood hasn't been 
knocking my door down . . . 
yet. There are many firsts being 
presented In this three-act play 
but the thing that Is really unl- 
que Is that the show Is being di- 
rected by a student at CLC, Don- 
ald Haskell. Don Is not only a 
fbrmer Mouscketeer buthasheen 
In numerous stage presentations 
on campus. Don lends to the show 

not only the knowledge of direct- 
ing but also a feeling that makes 
the actor use the long hours of 
rehearsal as a means of better. 
Ing himself and the play. Another 
thing that makes the play unique 
Is that of the nineteen cast mem- 
bers, fourteen are making their 
stage debut, Including yours 
truly. Don's work was cut out for 
him from the start. 

With dedication from Don and 
the cast, we feel that we have 
come up with what we know is a 
good show. 

Lead roles Include Dan Close 
as the camp security officer, 
Paul Arneson as soldier that 

fits the "all brawE), no brains" 
description, and Mark Elch- 
mann who plays the role of the 
camp dissident, Gary Odom,Phll 
Randall, Dan Cross, and Jim 
lyner have Important parts, too. 
Adding to these people a hard 
working stage crew andasupport* 
Ing cast that would be the envy 
of any Broadway stage director, 
this showpromlsestobeveryfun* 
ny and entertaining. The cost is 
only one dollar and I hope to 
see as many of you there as pos- 
sible. Remember, this Friday 
and Saturday, beginning at 8:15 
p.m., Staiag 17. I know that you 
win not be disappointed. 

Ron Conner 

Production Great, 

Playwright Stinl(s 


The Speech and Drama Department presentation of "Royal Gam- 
bit" was well done, Barbara Powers Is to be commended for her 
pacing of the long play, Frederick Wolf for the strikingly simple 
setting and lighting, Roberta Johnson Ibr the designing of the lovely 
costumes that each of the girls made for herself, The play was well 
cast, with extra bouquets toBrodleBrlckey for this flamboyant Henry 
Vm, and to Pat Owen for her queenly Katarlna of Aragon, 

As a play meant to speak to our day, however. It was Incredibly 
misconceived. In this reviewer's opinion. If the playwright had been 
content to allot all of the actors the same task, that of mouthing 
most unlikely utterances while each did his share of clowning, 
caricaturing, poshirlng, he might have a good thing going. But he 
chose to give the first wife a straight part. He made her a timeless 
paragon of perfection, piety and patience. Too bad. He could have 
had a first rate slapstick comedy on his hands, and then the fantastic 
parallels he drew with the 20th century would have elicited the guf- 
faws they deserved, as part of a general buffoonery. One might then 
have imagined a 16th century half-wlt agape at the conversations we 
now have as we agonize our way through the "death of God" move- 
ment, and we all could have had a healthy laugh at ourselves and 
our tensions. 

The playwright's problem was that he did not go further with his 
caricatures. His Henry could have been 100 per cent a jester, Ka- 
ttarlna void of emotion, Boleyn outdoing Mae West, Seymour alto- 
gether hysterical, Lutheran Anna of Cleves a primitive cackler from 
out of Teutonic forests, Kathryn Howard a nude refugee from Hair, 
and Kate Parr mothering Henry till she smothers him In his com- 
forters. But Gressleker unfortunately believes in his own Incredible 
portrait of the golden age of medieval faith alas now desecrated 
through modem apostasy. He actually means the play to say some- 
thing to us. 

The playwright apparently does not know that authoritarianism 
and eccleslastlcism has had It. Theology Is not the queen of. the 
sciences now, nor was It ever meant to be. We can't back reluctant-* 
ly Into the present anymore than we can embrace It Indiscrimi- 
nately. Gressleker Imagines along with Grlsar who wrote one of the 
early Roman Catholic Luther-batlngblographlesbefore the emergence 
of present happier attempts to understand each other, that the emer- 
gence of conscience can be blamed for the whole Pandora's box of 
modern times. He blames conscience, the only agent man has yet 
discovcicU to increase his morai sensitivity ior ntudsrn nihilism. 
He blames the use of reason for giving birth to perverse human- 
ism, ugly materlalslm, crass computerization of life, and atomic 
Internecine warfare. He doesn't realize that Henry VIII really was 
great, for all his faults. He doesn't know that the first wife just 
won't hold up as the symbol of true faith and virtue and peace on 
earth. Above all he doesn't know what the 20th century is ail about. 
So he wrote a poor morality play with the usual faults of morality 
plays: no people. Just types; no plot, just preaching; no Insight, 
Just over-slmpUflcatlon, 

John B. Cobb, Jr. of USC, has written of the modem world far 
more understandlngly. I recommend to viewers of "Royal Gamlt" 
one paragraph from his "From Crisis Tlieology to the Post-Modem 

"Perhaps even today at the point at which all rational structure and 
all human meaning seems to be evaporating, new structures and 
new meanings may be emerging. If this Is so, and I earnestly hope 
that It Is 80, then we may escape the desperate choice Indicated 
above between affirming the modem world (uncritically) and react- 
ing against It defensively. We may refuse the modem world not by 
defending the past but In the name of the new world which may 
(italics his) be born. We cannot of course know that It will be bom. 
We cannot even know whether our decision for It may help It be 
bom. But we can affirm It, and In doing so we can repudiate the mo- 
dpm world (rootless, disorientated, hopeless) In the name of the 
u rid we will to be the post-modern world (placing Jesus Christ In an 
ai hentlc sense at the center). 

Bible Group Active At CLC 

Although our catalogue states 
that we are a Christian oriented 
college, our religious activities 
are not well attended. It Is rare 
that chapel has over 100 people, 
and at religious retreats one 
finds very few people from CLC, 

However, there Is a group of 
people who are trying to change 
that by studying the word of God 
and bringing His word to the peo- 
ple. On February 26 those peo- 
ple who attended chapel saw some 
members of their group bring. 
Ing the word of God to the peo- 
ple. They alternated religious 
songs with readings from the 
Bible, With this format, they 
said a lot more about God and 
Jesus than most speakers usually 
say, and they demonstrated more 
Christian thought than most of 
our chapels do. 

This group meets regularly 
each week at the house of the Mat- 

sons, on the corner of Luther 
Avenue and Faculty Road, There 
they study the Bible, sing songs 
of the Lord's love, and listen 
to speakers that they Invite to 
come. They have a great deal 
to say to those people who take 
their religion seriously. 

One project that the group Is 
taking up Is "Terry's Teenage 
March for Father Garret's Boys, 
This Saturday from 1:00 p.m. to 

4:00 p.m., several members of 
this group will go out collecting 
donations from people to help 
a pastor named Father Garret 
get $85,000. The money will be 
used to pay a mortgage and to add 
a recreation room to a ranch he 
has for boys who are having 
trouble in life.

AW S Reports 




Last Sunday, the parking lot of 
the administration building was 
the scene ot CLC's first All 
School Kite Flying Contest. What 
a contest It wasi The day was 
beautiful, and the breeze was 
perfect. (AWS put In a requIsU 
tlon tor such a day.) TTiere was 
Jim Day giving his kite verbal 
moral support, and Mr. Lawson 
sprinting across the parfclnglot In 
sweatshirt and pipe trying to 
loft his kite In the air. TTie com- 
petition was strong for the kite 
highest in the air, but Karen 
Pederson and Jenna Llndqulst, 
two freshmen from Beta, won a 
large pizza from Shakey's when 
their kite became but a speck in 
the sky. They might stlU be 
out there reeling It In except 
tor the fact that the string 
broke and it landed in the field 
across from the parking lot. Tills 
field was the scene of several kite 
fiytng disasters last Sunday. Jen- 
na and Karen had also construct- 
ed the largest kite at the contest, 
but gave up trying to lly It when 
It almost flew them Instead, The 
most original kite was thatof Cyn- 
thia Rupp and Judy Wheeler, two 
seniors from McAfee. A set of 
red lips filled In with hundreds 
of lipstick blots was the artistic 
endeavor displayed on this kite. 
It didn't fly very well, but It 
still looked good on the ground. 
Although there were not a large 
number of students at the con- 
test, those who were there look- 
ed like they were having fun, 
and It Is hoped that perhaps this 
can become an annual event at 

AWS has three last events this 
quarter. Two are planned as "fi- 
nals tension releasers," and one 
is for the purpose of finding out 
how AWS can better serve com- 
muting women. 

On March 9, the AWS officers 
will be meeting the commuters 
at the home of Margaret Ford. 
Tlie officers can then let the AWS 
Senate know how commuters view 
AWS. A "tension releasing 
dance" is planned with AMS for 
Friday, March 14, that first, aw- 
ful day of finals. On Monday,

Students Oppose 

Olson's Letter

Frosh Women 

Rationale Of 
'The Open Letter ' 

CLC's chapter of National 
SPURS, the sophomore women's 
service club is looking for mem- 
bers to form next year's group. 
SPURS Is quite active on campus 
the groups ushers for campus 
events, serves the community, 
and helps tutor the girls at the 
Unfinished Symphony Ranch In 
Agoura. Each year during the 
spring quarter, the girls who 
are presently In SPURS select 
the Freshmen girls to make the 
next year's group. The general 
requirements tor application for 
SPURS are a 2.5 grade point 
average and some service acti- 
vities on campus — for example, 
working with AWS or the Fresh- 

The discussion at last Thurs- 
day's Forum was centered on the 
topic of President Olson's "Open 
Letter to the Students of Cali- 
fornia Lutheran College." The 
opinions expressed were all op- 
posed to the letter but varied ac- 
cording to the intensity of dis- 

It was generally formulated, 
however, that an apology and ex- 
planation from Dr. Olson would 
be necessary to correct the flocks 
of rumors and complications ge- 
nerated by the letter. 

After about an hour of dis- 
cussion the Forum adjourned to 
the President's Council Room 
where a meeting of the Infamous 
College Council was In session. 
Approximately eighty to one hun- 
dred students crowded the room 
and stood outside In the hall 
while presenting Dr. Olson with 
questions and complaints about 
the Open Letter. 

Dr. Olson stated at one time 
that an apology was apparently 
in order but that he would de- 
liberate on the Issue until Wed- 
nesday, March 5, at which time 
he would hold an open conference 
with the student body at chapel 

In addition to the regular 
TTiursday Forum at 4:15 In the 
CUB, there will be a special 
Forum this Friday during which 
the regents will sit In and listen 
to student comment. Let's ab-

Forum Ends 
In Confrontation 

the past 

The Forum which In 
has had the policy of 
It like it Is" last week took on 
a new perspective, the partici- 
pants of the forum went dlrecUy 
to where the action was, TTie ac- 
tion in this case was taking place 
in the President's conference 
room where Uie College Council 
was meeting. 

The Forum started at Its usual 
4:15 PJVI. time on Thursday and 
the topic for discussion was the 
President's **Open Letter" to the 
students, which was also sent to 
parents and constituency. The 
first speaker was Phil Reltan, a 
Junior Class Senator. Phil gave 
a summary of the action taken by 
the Senate In regard to Pres- 
ident Olson's letter. He went on 
to give a capsule view of the 
Resolution passed by the Senate. 
A few minutes later each per- 
son present was given a copy. 
The resolution passed by the 
Senate stated: "That the letter 
as a whole was Irrelevant not 
based on fact and Insulting to the 
Integrity of the student body, 
and presented a false Impression 
of the situation to parents and 
the constituency." 

As the afternoon progressed 
almost all points of view were 
heard. However, from the action 
that was to follow, It seems that 
the participants at the forum 
were much more Impressed with 
those speakers who held the view 
that some type of actton should 
be taken. As each participant 
spoke the tone within the Forum 
grew more militant. It was the 
view of most after about an hour 
of talking that the student point 
of view had been heard, but that 
the students had not had any op- 
portunity to question President 
Olson as to why he wrote such a 

Student body president WUlIe 
Ware at this time pointed out 
that the President was meeting 
with the College Council at that 
moment and that they were sched- 
uled to discuss the action taking 
place In the Forum. The tone of 
the meeting had reached a suf- 
ficient pitch that when Willie 

by Kent Driesbock 
suggested that the Forum should 
visit the College Council and ask 
the President questions directly, 
about torty-flve students accept- 
ed the suggestion. 

Reaching the Administration 
Building, Willie opened the Pres- 
ident's conference room door and 
walked in. He was followed by 
about twenty-five students and 
the remainder of the crowd lis- 
tened from outside. The student 
body president explained that the 
students present felt that an ex- 
planation of the President's let- 
ter was needed. This was the 
beginning of a rational confronta- 
tion. The students asked the Col- 
lege President a number of ques- 
tions such as: where he had 
heard the rumors which he wrote 
of In his letter and what the 
President would consider the 
rights of a student to be. The 
President then proceeded loan- 
swer them in the form of a 
rationale for writing the letter. 
Some students present In the 
conference room felt that the 
President owed an apology to the 
student body and that a written 
apology should also be mailed to 
parents and the constituency. 
President Olson then said be- 
cause he was not a person who 
did things on the spur of the 
moment he would need time to 
consider any statement he would 
make. The time then was 6:15 
and both students and the Council 
wanted to leave. A date was set 
when President Olson would give 
a statement and answer more 
questions from the student body. 
It was decided that March 5 at 
9:30 In the Gym, President Ol- 
son would speak to and with the 

From the talk on campus and 
the action taken by those at the 
Forum it seemed that the open 
letter written by the President 
has not set at all well with the 
student body. Many say that It 
Is a result of a communcatlons 
gap. President Olson in a "For- 
um" type atmosphere will have 
the chance to close the gap on 
March 5. 

by Gerald Rea 

It should be easy for us all 
to understand the rationale be- 
hind the **Open Letter' because 
the rationale is so simple. That 
rationale could be interpreted as 
something like "informing the 
shidents that disruptive tactics 
will be met with possible dis- 
clpllnary action." 

Was The Letter worth all the 
clerical work and the sum of 
nearly one hundred dollars of 
postage required to sent It to 
our parents? Definitely not. 

Here are the reasons: 

1) We know already what hap- 
pens when a student breaks rules. 
It's In the catalogue. We've known 
It since the first grade when we 
got our hand slapped for pulling 
Linda Jones' pigtails. As far as 
I'm concerned this fact alone 
negates any practicality The Let- 
ter might have had. 

2) Countless rumors and com- 
plications have been generatedby 
The Letter. These complications 
range from hysterical parents to 
reactionary radio stations ap- 
plauding Olson's efforts to "quell 
the violence at CLC." Every- 
one knows that rumors and un- 
founded statements are the last 
tilings we need at CLC, We've 
got enough of them already. 

3) The Letter has deteriorated 
the public image (was that image 
justified?) of CLC tremendously. 
Last weekend wblle pa ti tto n l n g 
for the grape boycott at Safeway 
Markets many people asked me 
what had happened to "good old 
CLC" — why did the students 
revolt? HA I 

4) The Letter forced students 
to do the exact thing that The 
Letter had denied to them. The 
students who entered the Presi- 
dent's Council Room last TTiurs- 
day were, In fact, using "dis- 
ruptive tactics." Should they be 
punished as an example? 

5) TTirough sly divergence tac- 
tics the administration has, in 
effect, closed the "proper chan- 
nels," If these channels remain 
clogged the students must and 
will demonstrate peacefully. No- 
tice the word "peacefully," Any. 
body in their right (pardon the 
expression) mind who knows any- 
thing about CLC should realize an 
Inherent fact; The gutless (a 
Ware term) student body of CLC 
would have to be pressed pretty 
hard before hard-core violence 
would erupt. Can you see the Na- 
tional Guard at CLC? Ho-Ha, 

I can see The Letter as mere- 
ly a costly. Impotent phallic 
flagellation catalyzed by Ignor- 
ance, non - communication, and 
just plain rumor. Tlie solution?

Tell Me, Bill 

I suppose one might call this article "Revulsion, by Wlederan- 
ders." A column with similar-sounding name, by one William 
KwaplnsI, has been appearing weekly in the Echo for quite some 
time now and, such column having the effect on me Implied in my 
proposed title, I thought It was about time to try to rationally 
counter some of the generalizations, oversimplifications, rambllngs, 
and just plain absurdities In Kwapinskl's column. 

Admittedly, I am somewhat removed from Mr. KwapinskI on the 
political spectrum. Beyond that fact though, I find It extremely 
difficult to debate his assertions, for the following reasons: 


G) Dismissing student activists whose grooming habits and 
life-style don't conform to one's own as "gestapo thues" Is not 
grappling with the very real Issue of widespread youUi dlssatis- 
fection with the status quo; 

(^) The use of such vivid yet misleading terms as "fascist lib- 
erals," "SDS punks," etc, etc, ad absurdum, is not helping to 
describe those portions of society In the least; 

(3) Urging those who don't conform to The American Way of 
Doing Things to leave the country, similarly, doesn't delve into the 
question of why so many people no longer conform to this Way; 

(4) Prescribing laissez-faire capitalism as the best political 
economic system for "the Individual" Is such a blatant denial of 

history as to be a self-defeating argument; 

(5) Finally, a seemingly unresolvable paradox exists In Kwa- 
pinskl's simultaneous belief in both "the freedom of the indi- 
vidual" and strict "law and order," 

But perhaps at this point I'd better explain these charges in 
greater depth, I'm afraid, Mr. KwapinskI, that your articles are 
not only misinforming, but that you yourself are seriously misin- 
formed on many issues. Take, for example, the 'SDS punks," The 
Students for a Democratic Society Is not a "neo-Fascist" organi- 
zation hell-bent on the overthrow of the U.S. Government, On 
rmany campuses, In fact, the SDS has been mainly concerned with 
ordinary student gripes such as bad housing facilities, food serv- 
ice complaints, faculty evaluation, etc. Unlike many ri^-wlng 
organizations, the SDS does not have an authoritarian power struct- 
ure. In fact, one popular periodical recently observed that the 
SDS is so democratic In Its organization that Its 'leaders" are 
extremely hard to identlfyl ••One man, one vote," that good old 
American principle so vociferously defended by conservatives, 
is the byword of the SDS. 

The SDS, and other campus activists, are dennltely concern- 
ed about un-democratic situations such as the Vietnam War and 
the draft. Many youth are angry, even violently angry, at having 
to fight a war never even voted upon by Congress, not to mention 
the disenfranchised youth who die In Vietnam dally. Call this 
anger "idealistic" if you wish, because It certainly is idealistic 
— youth are demanding that America live up to its ideals of de- 

Regarding laissez-faire 
shown that at the height 

capitalism, it seems that history has 
of the capitalist oerlod, a century or so 
ago, the "common man" was at about his worst state, economi- 
cally speaking, in recent history (excepting slavery and serfdom). 
Ask the IS.year old child worker in the coal mines or sweat-shops 
what hard work and thrift got himi A more recent example might 
be that of the migrant farm-worker who, unprotected by latwr laws. 
Is rewarded for his diligence by subhuman living conditions, un- 
Uvable wages, a high Infant mortality rate, etc. Ask him about the 
Joys of unrestricted capltallsmi 

Finally, Mr. Kwapinskl's love of individualism and his hangup 
with civil disobedience don't seem to Jive to well. Even the D.A. 
R. will admit proudly that our Founding Fathers claimed the 
right of revolution In the face of tyranny. Modem protesters, 
thank God, haven't declared open warfare yet on the society 
which exploits them. Militants, whether white, black or brown, are 
simply telling America in a forceful way that she had better give 
them their long-promised piece of the action, or be ready to pay the 

Perhaps, BUI, you should attempt to clarify your stance on cer- 
tain of these Issues In clear, lucid English without the wide sprink- 
ling of misnomers. What about the paramilitary organizations of 
the right — can society tolerate them? If the United States guar- 
antees the rlgjit of live as Inalienable, what Is her responsibility 
to the starving farm worker? If the **proper channels of the law" 
do not give men their guaranteed rights, what recourse Is there 
but civil disobedience? Tell me, Bill — I want to know.

ing white forehead of President Olson. 

At this time it seems appropriate to discuss the paranoid men- 
tality of the American people. T^is Is especially appropriate In 
light of February 24, open letter to the students. It seems ttiat the 
American mind has the tragic ability to over react to the slight- 
est stimuli. 

There are many prime examples of over-react ion, but certain 
cases prove my proposition in a crystal-clear manner. The over 
reaction by the whites in this nation to the riots of summers past 
proves the paranoid mentality of the American mind. The major- 
ity of the whites did not logically assess the plight of the black 
man, he just went out and bou^t a gun to protect himself. 

The so-called Communist threat of the Joseph McCarthy Era 
Is another outstanding example of the American Paranoia. Very 
few people analyzed what McCarthylsm was doing to Innocent 
people. Last year CBS allowed Pete Seeger to sing on nationwide 
TV after almost fifteen years of being blackballed for refusing 
to speak before the House Unamerlcan Activities Committee. Pete 
Seeger Is only one example of America's endless ability to react 
in only one way — systematized delusions. 

An example closer to home might be our college president. 
TTie letter which he sent our February 24 shows a paranoid react- 
ion to the college turmoil that Is being experienced throughout 
the nation. If President Olson had looked at the situation rationally 
he might have realized that much of the problem Is due to a lack 
of communication. This is especially true on this campus, TTie 
communication process on this campus between administration and 
students works about as well as a sieve clogged with bubblegum. 

The Paranoid mind of the American people Is for real. These 
have only been a few examples, there are many more. If problems 
are to be solved It will be done by rational thinking not paranoid 
over- reaction. 

To Whom It May Concern

My grandfather had a dream, 

My father had a dream, 
I had a dream, 
A beautiful dream, it was of a small plot of land 

In the heart of the San Joaquin, 
A plot of land where children 

could be raised to love freedom, 
the freedom of the land, 
A plot of land where all would be equal whether

And that dream became a reality —

from further south in our valley said that

In Need Of Launching? 

Dear Editor: 

In answer to a Letter to the 
Editor hi last week's paper en- 
titled "Why Shouldn't Women?" 
I have a few remarks which I 
would direct to "Earthman." In 
the first place. Paradise was lost 
when man's initiative proved as 
bad as woman's. Adam fell for 
Eve's line Just as heavily as 
she had swallowed that of the 

This world is flill of sheep 
who need to be led and those 
sheep are far from being totally 
composed of females. There are 
plenty of weak men whose minds 
do not function to any real ex- 
tent, cluttered with so many sex. 
ual there's no room for 
any reasoning processes to even 
begin. If you believe every wom- 
an's supreme goal to be "catch- 
ing a mate," you do not know 
women very well. Your extent 
of experience In this area Is far 
from being well-rounded If you 
can hastily surmise such a pat 
statement. You have never both- 
ered to find out If a woman's 
mind Is capable of responslbll- 
Ity, Might I add that If Ignorance 
Is truly bliss, then you must be 
living quite blissfully these days. 

You are ignorant of women 
like so many other men who find 
their enjoyment in "Ulegallj 
screwing as many female crea- 
tures they can get their hands 
on. Of course there are those 
who comply to such animal-han* 
dling, and then again there are 
many women whose maturity and 
responsibility far excells that of 
their male counterparts. They 
are the women who want their 
freedom and will face It with their 
own personal responsibility. 

I recommend that yougetoutof 
your bag and find out that life is 
not a slave-master relationship 
but Individual-Individual, neither 
one claiming their rlghtto super- 
iority of mental prowess. By 
your very signature, "Earth- 
man," you have shown that your 
own mind Is at dlrt-Ievel and as 
long as you're down there, youll 
find women at the same level. 
But at}ove, on the higher levels 
of human understanding, abide 
many men and women who are 
responsible to themselves and 
others, and whose goals do not 
reek of a single earthy drive. 

Why don't you use your mind 
and begin a true dialogue with 
what both sexes have to offer, 
Cathy Korstad 

And with that my dad's dream 
only be a dream again. 

It was a beautiful dream — 

Why won't you let it be real?

On Thousand Ooks 

It has been said that If two Americans become stranded on a de- 
sert Island, the first thing they would do Is form a committee. 

That, In a way, Is what the people of Thousand Oaks are like. We 
have so many clubs and committees around here, we sometimes feel 
endangered of losing track — and our heads. The usual service clubs 
are here: Optimists, Toastmasters, Rotary, the whole bit. Republl. 
cans and Democrats are here, plus a few American Independents, 
You might even scare up a Peace and Freedomlte if you put your 
boots on. 

Thousand Oaks Is one of those places that grew up rather sudden. 
ly, as though a big gaseous cloudcamealong and went KABOOMI, and 
spread people, houses, and committees out all over the valley. 
I am a citizen of Thousand Oaks. It Is my community, and I rather 
like It here. Thousand Oaks may never have major league baseball, 
the Bolshol Ballet, or national political conventions. But this town 
does have community spirit, some Industry, two local newspapers 
(plus service from a flock of others), a radio station, and a little 
love, truth, and beauty. Plus a healthy accumulation of the kinds 
of people who hold our beloved (Jit's beloved to me, at any ratp> 
country teogether. 

Thousand Oaks is largely a community ofwhatyou might call com- 
mon people. And I rather appreciate common people. Not because 
I like mediocrity, but because I would guess that the average man off 
the streets of T,0. probably has more common decency In his little 
finger than you could find In a truckload of the dime-a-dozen vision, 
arles up here on campus, who have such fun thumbing their noses 
at Thousand Oaks. 

If President Nixon came here to T.O, the same thing would pro- 
bably happen to him that occurred on his trip to Europe, The average 
people would come out to welcome him and shake his hand, llie 
Idealists, meanwhile, would be over on the other side of the city, 
acting like — tike — well, like idealists) T.O, Is part of the real 
world: the world you see every time you look out the window. 

In all honesty, I get quite a bang out of watching some of the young 
Phllosopher-Klngs here on campus whine, wall, or snicker at the 
various 'n* sundry vices of Thousand Oaks. They haven't contrlbu- 
ted one whit to the building of this city (they probably couldnH 
buUd a pencil); and yet they plan to sit up here on Mountclef (Olym- 
pus?) and pronounce Judgment I 

At any rate, I guess T.O. Just ain't the kind of place where a bud- 
ding Phllosopher-Klng would feel at home. There's just too blaster 
imany of us common folk around here, who won't "snap-to" to 
minute the idealist says "snap-to." 

If the young visionaries (who belittle the CLC administration In the 
pages of the Echo) really want to make this college over In their 
own image, I must say they're too late, lliousand Oaks already has 
a zoo. 

Search For Identity Goes On 

by Nancy Pingree 

Most of life seems to be spent searching (or an Identity or the 
minimum possibility of something to identify with. Most of the forma- 
tlve years are spent under the influence of the classroom. Tlie way 
a person ultimately interprets the world and himself Is directly re- 
lated to hours spent behind a desk, bells ringing the beginning and 
end of teachlng.l earning periods and play periods, teachers repeating 
knowledge that they received by someone repeating It at them and by 
miscellaneous tactics which seek to destroy the individual and the 
inate ability he has to express himself. 

Somehow creative man fits in this situation. He is a man, aware 
of what he is as a man, and Is trying to live this identity, trying to 
express It, He Is a man aware of his senses and sensitivities and 
Is continually renewing his Involvement with life. Perhaps the Judg- 
ment passed on the educational system is too harsh because this type 
of man exists in the mldat of it. Yet It seems he exists In spite of 
the system, not because of It. Only by overcoming the system, can 
this type of man creatively survive. Only through his own Initiative 
can he produce action Instead of programmed reaction. 

Almost everyone, at least once, has known what it Is to enjoy 
studying, to actively seek knowledge, to know what it means to parti- 
cipate In life. But the questions have to be raised why many people 
realize these things so few times; why studying Is too often done 
because It Is what should be done, 

A child is basically free and not afraid to discover, that is until 
he Is put into society's machine which after 12 years stamps him 
fit for society's acceptance. By the time a great many students 
reach college the factor they have acquired which most Influences 
their lives Is that they fear themselves; they fear the expression 
of themselves. Instead of being given the opportunity to experience 
the knowledge of what they are, to have the right of being free in 
continual growth, students have been patterned to follow formats, 
to place greater Importance on what has come before, to be wary 
of what Is new, to be anything as long as Its acceptable, to feel 
guilty If a modlfler is misplaced, to have thoughts graded, to be 
surpressed as Individuals, 

Many find themselves dissatisfied because they have notbeen given 
the chance to be what they must be, or even given the opportunity to 
see the possibilities open to them. They are dissatisfied but afraid 
to question even their own dissatisfaction. Some have become afraid 
to question anything at all. Yet In most everyone's life he has quest- 
ioned his beliefs, his Identity, his individuality. To many the questions 
pass without even a search because they have not been taught to use 
their minds to seek, to discover. 

Some elementary schools and a few colleges have come under the 
Influence of people who realize that self-realization and creative 
growth are necessary to keep people from pointless anxieties and 
needless frustrations and to help them move toward meaningful 
living. Schools under tills type of program generally work on the 
"honor" system and on the principles of person-to-person contact, 
that Is, what can be learned by being human and being unafraid of 
openness to others. So far the majority of tliese schools have pro- 
duced and are continuing to produce creative men vital to life and 
to giving others the opportunl^ to discover themselves*

Rights and Freedoms 

Of Students 


l^e basic aim of California Lutheran College Is to prepare stu* 
dents, within the Christian context, for meaningful adult lives. 
The Institution exists fbr the transmission of knowledge, the pur- 
suit of truth, the development of student, and the ffsnerul well. 
being of society. This purpose Impelled the founders of California 
Lutheran College to inscribe upon the seal of the Institution the 

"Love Of Christ, Truth, 
and Freedom" 

Free inquiry and free expression are Indispensable to the reall* 
zation of this purpose. As members of tlie academic community, 
students should be encouraged to develop the capacity fbr critical 
Judgment and to engage In a sustained and independent search tor 

Freedom to teach and freedom to learn are Inseparable facets 
of academic freedom. The freedom to learn depends upon appro- 
priate opportunities and conditions in the classroom, on the cam* 
pus, and In the larger community. Students should exercise their 
freedom with responsibility,

(Continued from pane 4) 

The responsibility to secure and respect general conditions con> 
duclve to the freedom to learn Is shared by all members of the aca- 
demic community, California Lutheran College has a duty to develop 
policies and procedures which provide and safeguard this freedom. 
Such policies and procedures should be developed by members of 
the academic community within the framework of this document, 

Tlie purpose of this statement Is to enumerate the essential pro> 
visions fbr student freedom to learn. 

I. Freedom Of Access 
To Higher Education 

The admission policies of a college or university are a matter of 
Institutional choice provided that It makes clear the characteristics 
and expectations of students which It considers relevant to success 
In the Institution's program. Under no circumstances should a stu- 
dent be barred from admission to California Lutheran College on 
the basis of race or religion. Thus, within the limits of Its faci- 
lities, California Lutheran College should be open to all students 
who are qualified according to Its admission standards. The faci- 
lities and services of the college should be open to all of its en- 
rolled students, and the Institution should use its Influence to secure 
equal access for all students to public lacllltles in the local com- 

11. In The Classroom 

"nie professor In the classroom and In conference should en- 
courage free discussion, inquiry, and expression. Student perform- 
ance should be evaluated solely on an academic basis, not on 
opinions or conduct In matters unrelated to academic standards* 

(A) Protection of Freedom of Expression. Students should be free 
to take reasoned exception to the data or views offered In any course 
of study and to reserve Judgment about matters of opinion, but they 
are responsible tor learning the content of any course of study for 
which they are enrolled, 

09) Protection Against Improper Academic Evaluation. Students 
should have protection through orderly procedures against pre- 
Judlced or capricious academic evaluation. At the same time, they 
are responsible for maintaining standards of academic performance 
established for each course In which they are enrolled, 

(C) Protection Against Improper Disclosure. Information about 
student views, beliefs, and political associations which professors 
acquire in the course of their work as Instructors, advisers, and 
counselors should be considered confidential. Protection against 
improper disclosure Is a serious professional obligation. Judgments 
of ability and character may be provided under appropriate circum- 
stances, normally with the knowledge or consent of the student. 

III. Student Records 

California Lutheran College should have a carefully conslderea 
policy as to the information which should be part of a student's 
permanent educational record and as to the conditions of Its dis- 
closure. To minimize the risk of improper disclosure, academic 
and disciplinary records should be separate, and the conditions of 
access to each should be set forth In an explicit policy statement. 
Transcripts of academic records should contain only Information 
about academic status. Information from disciplinary or counsel- 
ing flies should not be available to unauthorized persons on campus, 
or to any person off campus without the expressed consent of the 
student involved except under legal compulsion or in cases where 
the safety of persons or property Is Involved, No records should 
be kept which reflect the political activities or beliefs of students. 
Provisions should also be made for periodic routine destruction 
of non-current disciplinary records. Administrative staff and facul- 
ty members should respect confidential information which they ac- 
quire In the course of their work. 

IV. Student Affairs 

In student affairs, certain standards must be maintained if the 
freedom of students is to be preserved. 

(A) Freedom of Association, Students bring to the campus a variety 
of interests previously acquired and develop many new interests 
as members of the academic community. 'Hiey should be free to or- 
ganize and Join associattons to promote their common Interests, 

0) The membership, policies, and actions of a student organlza- 
tton usually will be determined by vote of only those persons who 
Iwld bona fide membership In the college community. 

02) Affiliation with an extramural organization should not of it- 
self dlsquali^ a student organization from Institutional recognl. 

(3) If campus advisers are required, each organization should be 
free to choose Its own adviser and institutional recognition should 
not be withheld or withdrawn solely because of the inability of a 
student organization to secure an adviser. Campus advisers may 
advise organizations In the exercise of responsibility, but they should 
not have the authority to control the policy of such organizations, 

(4) Student organizations may be required to submit a statement 
of purpose, criteria for membership, rules or procedures, and a 
current list of officers. They should not be required to submit a 
membership list as a condition of institutional recognition. 

6) Campus organizations, Including those affiliated with extra- 
mural organization, should be open to all students without respect 
to race, creed, or national origin, except for organizations whose 
alms are primarily etlinocentric or sectarian. 

(6) The college shall guarantee to recognized student organiza- 
tions the following rights: to hold meetings and social events; to 
use ttio name of the college In connection with publicity ol activi- 
ties; to use the facilities of the college, such as buildings and 
equipment; to have its events listed on the appropriate calendars. 

(7) It Is the responsibility of recognized student organlzattons 
to comply with the provlstons of this document* 

CB) Freedom of Inquiry and Ei^resston 

0) students and student organlzattons should be free to examine 
and to discuss all questions of Interest to them, and to express 
opinions publicly and privately. They should always be free to 
support causes by orderly means which do not Interfere with the 
rights of other students. At the same time, It should be made clear 
to the academic and larger community that in their public expres- 
stone or demonstrations students or student organizations speak 
only for themselves, 

Q) Students should be allowed to Invito and to hear any person 
of their own choosing. TTiose routine procedures required by an 
Institution befbre a guest speaker is Invited to appear on campus 
should be designed only to insure orderly scheduling of facilities 
and adequate preparation for the event, and that the occasion is 
conducted in a manner appropriate to the academic community, TTie 
institutional control of campus ^cillties should not be used as a 
device of censorship. It should be made clear to the academic and 
.larger community that sponsorship of guest speakers does not ne- 
cessarily Imply approval or endorsement of the views expressed, 
either by the sponsoring group or the institution. 

(3) Action by individuals jr groups to prevent speakers invited 
to the campus from speaking, to disrupt the operations of the instl- 
tutlon in the course of demonstrations, toobstructtreedom of expres- 
sion by use of threat, or to restrain other members of the acadelc 
community and campus visitors by physical force Is destructive 
of the pursuit of leamhig and a free society. All components of the 
academic community are under a strong obligation to protect its 
processes from these tactics. 

(4) Speakers must be accorded the courtesy of an unlnterupted 
presentation. If possible, speakers should accept as a condition of 
their appearance the right of their audience to question or chal- 
lenge statements made in the address. Questions may be permitted 
from the floor unless prevented by the physical limitations or the 
size of the audience. 

(5) The invitation and scheduling of such a program must represent 
the desire of the sponsor and not the will of external Indlvithials or 

(C) Student Participation In Institutional Government. As con- 
stituents of the academic community, students of California Luth- 
eran College will be free, individually and collectively, to express 
their views on issues or institutional policy and on matters of general 
Interest to the student body, TTie student body should have clearly 
defined means to participate In the formulatton and applicatton 
of institutional policy affecting academic and student affairs. Tlie 
role of the student government and both its general and specific 
responsibilities should be made explicit, and the actions of the stu- 
rdent government within the areas of Its Jurisdiction should be re- 
viewed only through orderly and prescribed procedures. 

(D) Student Publications, StudentpubUcatlonsandthestudent press 
are a valuable aid in establishing and maintaining an atmosphere 
of free and responsible discussion and in bringing student con- 
cerns to the attention of the faculty and the Institutional authorities 
and in formulating student opinion on various issues on the campus 
and In the world at large* 

TYie student newspaper should be an independent corporation fi- 
nancially and legally separate from the college. In the delegation 
of editorial responsibility to students the institution must provide 
sufficient editorial freedom and financial autonomy for the student 
publications to maintain their integrity of purpose as vehicles for 
free Inquiry and free expression in an academic community. 

Institutional authorities, In consultation with students and faculty, 
have a responsibility to provide written clarification of the role of 
the student publications, the standards to be used in their evalua- 
tion, and the limitations on external control of their operation. 
At the same time, the editorial freedom of student editors and mana- 
gers entails corollary responsibilities to be governed by canons of - 
responsible Journalism, As safeguards fbr the editorial freedom of 
student publications the followLi^- provisions are necessary: 

Q) The student press shall be free of censorship and advance ap- 
proval of copy, and Its editor and managers shall be free to develop 
their own editorial policies and news coverage, 

C2) Editors and managers of student publications shall be protect- 
ed from arbitrary suspension and removal becauseof student, faculty, 
administrative, or public disapproval of editorial policy or content. 
Only for proper and stated causes shall editor and managers be sub- 
ject to removal and then by orderly and prescribed procedures set 
forth by the Student Publications Committee. Ilie agency responsible 
tor the appointment of editors and managers should be the agency 
responsible for their removal, 

(3) All student published and financed publications should explicitly 
state on the editorial page that the opinions there expressed are not 
necessarily those of the college or student body. 

V. Off Campus Freedom 
Of Students 

(A) Exercise of Rights of Citizenship. College students are both 
citizens and members of the academic community. As citizens, stu- 
dents should enjoy the same freedom of speech, peaceful assem- 
bly, and right of petition that other citizens enjoy and, as mem- 
bers of the academic community, they are subject to the obllga* 
tlons which accrue to them by virtue of their membership. Faculty 
members and administrative officials sliould insure that institutional 
powers are not employed to inhibit such Intellectual and personal 
■development of students as 'is o'ften promoted by their exercise 
of rights of citizenship both on and off campus, 

(^) Institutional Authority and Civil Penalties, Activities of stu* 
dents may upon occasion result in violation of law. In such cases, 
institutional officials should be prepared to apprise students of 
sources of legal counsel and may offer other assistance. Students 
who violate the law may incur penalties prescribed by civil auth- 
orities, but institutional authority should never be used merely 
to duplicate the function of general laws. Only when the institu- 
tion's interests as an academic community are distinct and clearly 
Involved should the special authority of the Institution be asserted. 
The student who Incidentally vtolates Institutional regulations in the 
course of his off-campus activity, such as those relating to class 

{ConUnucd on vau.c 6} 


Page 6 


(Continued from page 5) 

attendance, should be subject to no greater penalty than would nor- 
mally be imposed. Institutional action should be Independent of 
community pressure. 

VL Procedural Standards 
In Disciplinary Proceedings 

Bi developing responsible student conduct, disciplinary proceed- 
ings play a role substantially secondary to example, counseling, 
guidance, and admonition. At the same time, educational Institu- 
tions have a duty and the corollary disciplinary powers to protect 
their educational purpose through the setting of standards of 
scholarship and conduct for the students who attend them and 
through the regulaUon of the use of institutional facilities. In the 
exceptional circumstances when the preferred means fall to re. 
solve problems of student conduct, proper procedural safeguards 
should be observed to protect the student from the unfair inposltlon 
of serious penalties. 

The administration of discipline should guarantee procedural 
fcilmess to an accused student. Practices In disciplinary cases 
may vary In formality with the gravity of the offense and the sanc- 
tions which may be applied. The Jurisdiction of faculty or student 
judicial bodies, the disciplinary responsibilities of Institutional of- 
ficials and the regular disciplinary procedures, including the stu- 
dent's right to appeal a decision, should be clearly formulated 

In all situations, procedural fair play requires that the student 
be informed of the nature of the charges against him, that he be 
given a fair opportunity to refute them^ that the institution not be 
arbitrary In its actions, and that there be provisions for the appeal 
of the decision. 

(A) Standards of Conduct Expected of Students. The institution 
has an obligation to clarify those standards of behavior which It 
considers essential to Its educational mission and Its community 
life. These general behavioral expectations and the resultant specific 
regulations should represent a reasonable regulation of student con- 
duct but the student should be as free as possible from Imposed 
limitations that have no direct relevance to his education. Offenses 
should be as clearly defined as possible and interpreted in a manner 
consistent with the aforementioned principles of relevancy and 
reasonableness. Disciplinary proceedings should be instituted only 
tor violations of standards of conduct formulated with significant 
student participation and published In advance through such means 
as a student handbook or a generally available body of Institutional 
regulations. All college disciplinary policies should be available to 
all students In writing, 

O) Investigation of Student Conduct. 

0) Except under extreme emergency circumstances, premises 
occupied by students and the personal possessions of students 
should not be searched unless appropriate authorization has been 
obtained. For premises such as residence halls controlled by the 
Institution, an appropriate and responsible authority should be 
designated to whom applications should be made before a search 
.Is conducted. The application should specify the reasons for the 
search and the objects or information sought. The student shall be 
present, if possible, during the search. For premises not controlled 
by the institution, the ordinary requirements for lawful search shall 
be followed, 

C2) Students detected or arrested in the course of serious viola- 
tions of Institutional regulations, or Infractions of ordinary law, 
shall be Informed of their rights. No form of harrassment shall 
be used by Institutional representatives to coerce admissions of 
guUt or Information about conduct of other suspected persons, 

(C) Status of Student Pending Final Action. Pending action on the 
charges, the status of a student should not be altered, or his right 
to be present on the campus and to attend classes suspended, ex- 
cept for reasons relating to his physical or emotional safety and 
well-being, or for reasons relating to the safety and well-being 
of students, faculty, or college property, 

0) Hearing Committee Procedures, When the misconduct may 
result in serious penalties and If the student questions the fair- 
ness of disciplinary action taken against him, he should be granted 
on request, the privilege of a hearing before a regularly consti- 
tuted hearing committee, TTie hearing committee procedures should 
satisfy the fbllowlng requirements of "procedural due process": 

fl) The Hearing Committee should include faculty members or 
students, or, If regularly Included or requested by the accused, both 
faculty and student members. No member of the hearing committee 
who is otherwise Interested Ln the particular case should sit in 
judgment during the proceedings. 

Q) The student shall be Informed, in writing, of the reasons 
fior the proposed disciplinary action with sufficient particularity and 
In sufficient time to Insure opportunity to prepare for the hearing. 

(3) The student appearing before the hearing committee shall have 
the right to be assisted In his defense by an adviser of his choice, 

(4) The burden of proof should rest upon the officials bringing the 

(5) The student shall be given an opportunity to testify and to pre- 
sent evidence and witnesses. He shall have the opportunity to hear 
and question adverse witnesses. In no case shall the committee 
consider statements against him unless he has been advised of their 
content and of the names of those who made them, and unless he has 
been given an opportunity to rebut unfavorable inferences which 
might otherwise be drawn. 

(6) All matters upon which the decision may be based must be 
Introduced into evidence at the proceeding before the Hearing 
Committee. The decision shall be based solely upon such mat- 
ters. Improperly acquired evidence shall not be admitted, 

CO In the absence of a transcript, there shall be both a digest 
and a varbatlm record, such as a tape recording, of the hearing. 

(8) The decision of the Hearing Committee should be final, sub. 
Ject only to the student's right of appeal to the President or ul- 
timately to the governing board of the college.

Long Season Ends 

by Frank Nausin 

The long season has finally come to Its long awaited end. The 
season can not really be called a success by those who measure 
success 'oy the number of wins a team has, but there were some 
bright spots and a hope for next year. The Kingsmen finished the 
season with a 6 win 20 loss 

record, better than last year itc the Knaves were Ed StUllan 
but still pretty dismal. 15 pts., and Ed Halverson 11 

Last Tuesday night the Kings- pts. The Knaves by their win- 
men traveled to Pasadena the nlng record give hope to the 
home of the Rose Bowl and other future of basketball at CLC, 
famous tnings as well as the home Coach Pitman and his team should 
of Pasadena College. It was a be commended for their fine per- 
typlcal Kingsmen performance, tormance, especially at the end 
they jumped off to a lead in the of the season, when the team 
first half and lead at the Inter- really Jelled Into a unit, 
mission 46 to 41, Then they suf- 
fered what Coach Campbell calls NEXT YEAR 

a 'typical Campbell half" falling 
behind by as much as 15 points 
at one time. But then true to 
form the Kingsmen came scratch- 
ing and clawing back, but as 
usual It was too little too late. 
The final score was Pasadena 
93, Kingsmen 90. Standouts for 
the Khigsmen were Senior Mike 
Mayfleld, playing his last game 
for the violet and gold, who had 
26 pts., Rick Schroeder, who 
finally decided to show us the 
shotting ability he has possessed 
all along hit for 17 markers, 
Steve Clem hit for 11 and Ralph 
Lucas playing his second game 
of the evening filling In for the 
Injured Tim Iver'soa, also hit 

What Is the outlook for next 
year? The outlook has to be 
an optimistic one. When Coach 
Campbell was asked about next 
year he stated, "This season 
was not too successful but If 
the season were to start tomor- 
row I would be ready and raring 
to start practice." Only one sen- 
ior Is graduating the rest of the 
team should be back next year as 
well as the addition of some very 
fine frosh players of this year. 
With the experience gained this 
year and the now familiarity with 
the system used the team has no 
place to go but up, 'nie big prob- 
lem this year has been that of 
lack of consistency In the play 

11 pts, Mayfleld and Benson led of the team. Hopefully the team 

the team in rebounding and havo will be able to overcome their 

all season, especially Mayfleld. mental lapses and put together 

a consistent performance game 

KNAVES after game next year and CLC 

Tlie Knaves won their fifth will have a winning basketball 

stralgiit game and finished the team for the first time in the 

season with a 11 and 10 record, history of the school. The closest 

Lead by the scoring of Steve they came was in 1962-63 when 

Jasper, 26 pts., and Ralph Lu- they finished with a 10 and 10 

cas 25 pts., theKn.'i'eswhalloped record. It certainly Is a goal to 

the frosh from Pasadena 89 to shoot for and next year may be 

82. Other men In double figure? one of the best opportunities they 

might have.

I didn't join the Peace Corps for 
the greatest reasons. Not wlwtyou' 
call altruism. 

Ijyou want to know, I joined 
because I had this idea of doing 
something I wasn't supposed to do, 
I mean, go Jar away. See things. 
Expand my mind. That stuff. 

What I was supposed to do was 
marry a split-level house. I never 
exactly intended to teach. 

Maybe what I really am is, different 
And maybe I wouldn't ever have 
married a split-level house. Maybe. 

But I couldn't give up after college. 
I wasn't ready, if you could say 
that. I Joined the Peace Corps and 
I went to Sinoe, Liberia. 

It was so wild and new and, you 
know, definitely scary, A small 
plane with no landing field. 
People parking my gear on their 
heads, like a safari. 

But then the Hollywood part of it 
comes to an end. It ends, I think, 
when you can't wash yow hands 
when you want to. Or go to 
a nice John. 

Or you feel tired when you go to bed 
A nice tired. I never worked before. 
Really worked. 

And then something different starts. 
I taught kids. I taught teachers. 
Me. I went home with them. 

I'd sit and we'd all worry about 
something. A pickup truck with a 
busted fuel pump. Could I get some 
American lipstick. Maybe mention 
thai a woman ivouldn't have to 
have a million kids if she didn't 
want to. Malaria. 

Then the next day I'd think I was 
just a teacher. Except there' d be 
fried plantain for breakfast. 

A nd you get a magazine. A nd you 
think about America. Martin 
Luther King. And you don't knou 
I never seriously thought I would 
change the world. Does anyone 
believe it any more? 

Then I came hack. And I'm a 
teacher. And I've been seeing this 
guy, Ronnie. He's a teacher. We 
teach at P.S. 201. It's in Harlem.

Sets Precedents 
For Academic Growth 

On March 5, 1969 the faculty of California Lutheran College voted 
to establish an Interdisciplinary degree in Latin American studies. 
Out of the Latin American Studies Program has come many prece- 
dents which wIU be favorable to CLC's academic growth 

Courses In Latin American Af- 
fairs were first offered during the 
1967-68 school year. These 
courses were the result of a 
$29,203 grant which allowed for 
the Initiation of a cooperative La- 
tin American Studies Program 
between California Lutheran Col- 
lege and the University of Sou- 
thern California. During the 
1967.68 school year 90 CLC stu- 
dents took advantage of these 
course offerings, which were 
taught by Mr. Philip Paris. Mr, 
Paris came to CLC on a teach- 
ing fellowship from the Univer- 
sity of Southern California, as a 
result of the Latin American 

TTiose entering into the newly 
established Latin American Stu- 
dies Program will be required to 
take a year long course In Latin 
American Issues and also a re- 
quired number of Spanish lan- 
guage classes. The interdiscip- 
linary nature of the LatlnAmerl- 
can Studies degree allows the stu- 
dent to fuUfill the remainder of 
his course requirements by tak- 
ing classes which directly re- 
late to Latin American Studies. 
Starting In the fall of 1969 there 
will be two courses offered at 
some time during the school 
year In the field of art which 
wUl directly relate to Latin 
American Economics and So- 
ciology — Anthropology will 
also offer two classes each 
during the year.PoUtlcal science 
will offer one class while the 
History Department has three 
possible classes It can offer. 
The Spanish Department wUl at 
sometime during the students 
studies offer seven electlves plus 
the required classes. For those 
students attendhig this years 
summer session at CLC the Po- 
litical Science Department will 
also offer aContemporary Issues 
class which wUl deal with Latin 

The broad course offerings 
are only part of the Latin Ameri- 
can Studies Program. Under the 
cooperative program with USC, 
and with the greatful assistance 
of Dr. Kenneth F. Johnson (Head 
of the Latin American Studies 
Program at USC) such programs 
as special field trips to USC 
and foreign study at the Univer- 
sity "of Cuernavaca In Mexico 
have been established. 

One example of the field trips 
Vililch are held under the coopera- 
tive program between USC and 
CLC Is the one scheduled for 
April 9 from 10 ajn. to 12 p.m. 
Dr. Johnson has invited In- 
terested California Lutheran Col- 
lege students to attend a sympo- 
sium on the Student Revolution in 
Mexico. At this symposium there 
will be a discussion relating to 
Latin American Students of the 
Los Angeles area to the Student 
Revolution In Mexico. Guest 
speakers for this meeting, at 
which only Spanish will be spok* 
en, are Senor Manuel de la Isla, 

Sal Castro and Senor Cruz, Sen- 
or Castro and Senor Cruz are 
from the Latin American Affairs 
Department of Lincoln High 
School In Los Angeles, Anyone 
interested In attending this sym. 
poslum should contact Mr, Paris. 

In the year-long Latin Ameri- 
can Issues course being taugtit 
there have been six guest lectur- 
ers. On two field trips to USC, 
students heard Dr. Manuel Ser- 
vin speak on the differences be- 
tween North American and Latin 
American colonial practices. Dr. 
Hector Orjuelia, also of USC, 
spoke on antl-Unlted States writ- 
ings in Latin America, Four 
other lecturers came to CLC to 
speak before the Latin American 
Issues class. Dr, Paul Hadley, 
of use, discussed Che Guevera; 
Dr, Wesley Bjur, a former mis- 
slonary, lectured on Chile; Dr. 
Paul Hoopes.Brigham Young Uni- 
versity, spoke on his studies In 
Argentina. Dr, Kenneth Johnson 
also related to the class on 
several occastons, his Latin 
American travels and studies. 

In the area of foreign study 
two California Lutheran students, 
Bonlta Bone and Kent Drlesbock, 
have been awarded grants by 
CLC, In cooperation with USC, 
to do field study at the Univer- 
sity of Cuernavaca in Mexico 
this summer. Dr. Johnson will 
accompany these two students to 
Mexico for the six week session. 
Both these students have been 
accepted to do graduate study at 
USC and will receive graduate 
credit for their studies In Mexl- 


TTie Latin American Program, 
which at this Ume has no ibrmal 
director. Is the first Interdiscip- 
linary program to beproposedby 
the Intercultural Committee and 
accepted by the faculty. With 
this acceptance comes the hope 
that one of the projected goals 
of the Latin American Program 
can be met. This goal would be 
the re-channellng of the pre- 
dominately white-Amerlcan em- 
phasis of the college curricu- 
lum to one which realizes the 
minority situations feced by La- 
tin and Black Americans, It has 
been said that these courses 
will seek to dispell misconcep- 
tions and biases concerning 
emerging peoples, this is a goal 
which has long been due in the 
academic community. 

The newly established Latin 
American Studies Program has 
set precedents in Interdiscipli- 
nary study, Inter-colleglate co- 
operation and foreign study, all 
these precedents can only add 
greater academic worth to Cali- 
fornia Lutheran College.

ril Tell You Mark 

at least 111 try. I doubt that I can make myself fully clear 
to you, since I am not well-versed In the language of bleeding hearts 
and fuzzy minds, and also I have doubts as to whether you have 
actually read my articles. I_ think you must have eotten your in- 
formation from gossip at the local bar, or someplace. 

I shall attempt, nonetheless, to clear up the five points you raised. 

Point one: I do not dismiss student activists as "Gestapo thugs" 
because of their grooming habits or life-styles. Tlie reason why I call 
them Gestapo thugs, etc, is because they talk, think, and act like 
Gestapo thugs. And as long as they continue to act in such a manner 
then I shall continue to refer to them as such. 

Point two: It Is rather hard for me to believe that the SDS, and 
other such groups, have the slightest bit of concern (or democracy. 
At UCLA, for instance, the SDS ripped downa display of photographs 
of Viet Cong atrocities, which was set up by another student group 
which happened to hold a different political view from that of the 
SDS. At Berkeley and S.F. State the activists have shouted down 
speakers, attacked and beat up their fellow students who were try- 
ing to go to class, and terrorized professors who disagreed with 
them. The SDS, furthermore, has attacked and terrorized CIA, 
Dow, and armed service recruiters, thus preventing other students 
from exercising the right to seek a job. Anyone who would call 
this "democracy," should. In my humble opinion, have his head 

No matter how incensed a person is about the Vietnam war, 
he has no right to stick so much as his big toe between me and the 
door to my class. Furthermore, he has no right whatsoever to in- 
terfere in any way, shape, or form, with my right to seek a job 
with whatever company or agency I so desire. PERIOD. 

I am quite aware of the "democratic" set»up which exists within 
SDS, Dr, Leonard Peikoff described it rather concisely: "Complete 
democracy — among the dictators," I'm also aware that the leaders 
of SDS are hard to Identify. I don't blame them. If the FBI was after 
me, I'd be rather "hard to Identify," too. 

Point three: TTie "Love It or Leave It" matter was explained In 
my column on that subject, and I see no need to repeat it here. You 
seem to assume that whenever somebody condemns America, this 
automatically means that there is something wrong with America. 
Has it occurred to you that there may occasionally be something 
wrong with the condemners? 

Point four: You may be interested to know that I do not believe 
In "lalssez-faire capitalism;" never did,and never will. It is true that 

living standards were quite low a century ago — compared with what 
we generally enjoy today. But it is also true that America offered 
a much better opportunity for those millions of immigrants, than they 
would have enjoyed In their home countries. Furthermore, capitalism 
— whether "laissez-faire" or not — has played the major role In 
lifting this nation to the highest standard of living In the history of 

Point five: My general position on civil disobedience was outlined 
several months ago, in an article entitled "Law and Conscience," 
and as is the case with point three, I see no need to repeat it here. 
ITiere is police malpractice In our country, and police who engage 
In such malpractice should be duely punished. The fact remains, how. 
ever, that we have a government of laws, not of men — and the first 
duty of any legitimate government Is to protect Its citizens (including 
students) and their property from attack, molestation, and violence. 
And If you don't understand the necessity of laws to guard liberty 
and safety, then all I can do Is to repeat Leo Rosten's terse comment: 
Laws are made to protect people like me from people like you,. 

E.P.C. Looks 
At New Left 

by Dr. F. Bowman 
Chairman, E.P.C. 

On February 26, 1969, the 
Educational Policies Committee 
met In special session to con- 
sider a course sponsored by the 
Philosophy Department called. 
The New Philosophy of the Polls, 
Because of the concern felt by 
many people over this course, 
special consideration was given 
to those parties who desired to 
t>e heard. As It Is the procedure 
that a new course be presented 
by the chairman of the depart- 
ment sponsoring It, the Chair- 
man of the Philosophy Depart* 
ment was invited to present this 
course to the Committee. Other 
concerned individuals either 
asked to attend the meeting or 
were asked by various members 
of the E.P.C, to attend. These 
included the President of the 
College, the Director of Alumni 
and Church Relations, and eight 
students. All were welcomed. 
None were rejected or denied 

The meeting was conducted 
openly and democratically. All 
those who desired to speak or 
ask questions, including the in- 
vited guests, were given the op- 
portunity. After approximately 
two and one half hours of de- 
liberation, and after everyone 
had been given the opportunity 
to express himself as he wish- 
ed, the Committee voted unan- 
imously with one abstention to 
reject the proposed course. 

The Chairman of the E.P.C. 
was then instructed to appoint 
a subcommittee chairman to 
study further the issues raised 
by the proposal. The Chairman 
appointed Dr. Anne Nelson. The 
subcommittee Is to include stu- 
dents as well as Faculty and is 
to report at the earliest oppor- 

The E.P,C. would like to ex- 
press Its thanks to those peo- 
ple who took the time and In- 
terest to present and defend va- 
rious aspects on the New Left. 
Through this interest, the Com- 
mittee was provided with a 
wealth of opinion and sugges- 
tions which aided it in its de-

Where Were You When 
The Lights Went Out ? 

by Nancy Pingree 

Late evening, Monday, March 10 the lights went out. The Campus 
was dark. Thousand OaJcs was dark. No electric light could he seen. 

Ten seconds after the fact, the Women's Dorms became the sight 
of screaming girls; approximately 20 seconds after that, a rumble 
of feet could be heard nearlng Alpha and Beta approaching from the 
direction of Mount Clef, In the darkness the men did the best they 
could to raid the dorms and then they left with a trail of girls behind 

The school began to congregate In Mount Clef's parking lot; that 
Is, the part of the school that wasn't struggling to study by candle 
light. In the parking lot there were candles and there were flash- 
lights and flashbulbs. There was also a great tension explosion 
running through the crowd and keeping pace with the flares, fire- 
works, and fire crackers, A few people questioned why the lights 
had gone out but most were content Just to have them out. 

A bonfire was started in front of the West Wing of Mount Clef, 
which prompted the starting of a fire in the convenient Hasty Wasty 
outside the East Wing. The ThousandOaks Fire Department promptly 
responded once the fires were out. 

Miscellaneous comments heard during the first half of the evening 
Included these: 

"This place is freaked," 

**Let's go rape a girl," 

"I can't see." 

**My God, he's driving on the sidewalk." 

"I wonder how many engagements this Is going to cause?" 

**I kind of dig it." 

"RichardI Richardl Stop Itl" 

"I want to study," 

*Oh s—, the lights are coming on," 

"Let's do It again." 

The boys did do It again, delighting In the sheer Joy of running 
once more through Alpha and Beta before the lights came on. In 
the dorm some of the girls seemed delighted also, proclaiming 
"They're coming over here!" and "Oh goody, here they come 
again," Other gtrls were genuinely frightened of the invasion, 
fearing the possibility of some frustrated and unscrupulous boys 
getting In the back door or over the roof.

Keep Ideolists, 
Intellectuals Occupied 

Dear Editor^ 

I think the proposed course on 
the New Left Is an exellent Idea. 

As Eric Hofferonce remarked, 
an important problem facing our 
nation Is that of keeping the Idea- 
lists and ''Intellectuals'* occu. 
pled - making them think they 
are accomplishing something 
when they're really not. 

The course on the New Left 
would help keep John Guth, Ted 
Larson, and other such campus 
cranks occupied. 

A crank, amongst otherthings, 
is a perpetual juvenile; and the 
best way to keep such people out 
of political power Is to keep them 

Now If we can keep all 
the cranks in the nation occupied, 
then we will standabetterchance 
of keeping reality supreme, the 
Idealists out of power, and the 
rest of us free. 

Of all fifty states, the gamblers 
have one. And of all CLC's 
courses, there should be one for 

William Kwapinski 


To Earthman: 

Regarding your reply to the 
article in the Echo entitled "Why 
Shouldn't Women", I found it to 
be very despicable. I question 
the maturity of writing an article 
without signing your name. Are 
you ashamed of the way you feel 
or do you need professional help? 
Which Is it? 

As for the innocence or guilt 
in the Garden of Eden, have you 
ever thought that God might have 
wanted it to be this way? What 
If Adam was really the one who 
offered the apple to Eve - which 
could have been true! Then what 

Since your view of women is 
so grotesque I am inclined to take 
pity and forgive you for the re- 
mark that **a woman's supreme 
goal in life Is to catch a mate In 
hopes of having legal Inter- 
course." What is your ultimate 
goal "know-lt-all"? Your're the 
one who created the double stand- 

Not only are women equal to you 
men but they are superior. Ask 
any foremost scientist and 
they would state that men are 
actually "weak femaJes", based 
on the physical evidence of 
chromosomes. If it weren't for 
women you wouldn't be here to 
make the dumb remarks you are

The Theologian 

I have Just come from hearing another theologian trying to solve 
the problems of biblical faith by the application of intelligence, 

and I am more convinced than ever that the eeeheads have lost the 
way and that the prayer of Jesus has a savage relevance: 
I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for hiding these 
things from the learned and wise, and revealing them to the 
simple. Yes, Father, such was thy choice. (NEB) 

Matthew tells us that wise men came to Bethlehem seeking 
the king of the Jews. There Is some difference of opinion as to what 
kind of wise men these were, llie New English Bible calls them 
astrologers. Chances are they were not theologians, at least of the 
modem stripe. For modern theologians (Jjy which I mean, of course, 
not all contemporary theologians but that unhappy breed which 
trusts in man and makes flesh its arm) seem not to be Interested 
In finding God, at leastnot in flndlnghlm in the tortuous way described 
by the Gospel, For that way is a wildgoose chase full of mystery 
and contradiction and, worst of all, of humiliation. And if there is 
one thing the contemporary theologian does not want to be — It 
is humiliated. He wants to be cogent, relevant, secular, power- 
oriented, sltuatlonally sensitive, de-mythologlzed, posltivlstlc, lin- 
guistically pure, concerned. Involved, and communicative, 

PALACE PRECINCTS. The modem theologian wants to erect his 
seminary near the Herodlan Palace — close to the centers of scten. 
tlflc power. He wants to be at the very navel of the uiQverslty. He 
wants to stand with the other smart men squinting profoundly into 
the afternoon sun and talking abstractly about the no-God and the 
proto-man and other fine subjects. He does not want to be an 
archaism at some com-frlnged campus full of sweaty, mid-west- 
ern piety and warmed*over supernaturallsm. He wants leverage. 

SIMPLE AND FOOLISH. In other words, he does not want to be 
a child. He does not want to admit his stupidity, his groping, fumb- 
ling, buzzing, blooming idiocy. He does not want to get down on 
his knobby knees and admit that he Is not only a child but a per- 
verse creature — full to overflowing with vanity, and untidy, mon- 
keylike greed, lecherousness, envy, malice, and rage. 

And because he does not see himself thus, he does not leave 
Jerusalem with the other wise guys and make his way down to 
Bethlehem to see the child. He devotes himself to proving himself 
intellectually respectable and to making his theology truly scien- 

SCANDAL. But the Christian Gospel begins In absurdity. Ter- 
tullian has been much maligned by some very good men, but he was 
not far from the truth when he asked, "What has Athens to do with 
Jerusalem?" He meant, •'What does the Gospel have to do with all 
'that fine thinklne^" Paul meant the same thin^ It is a bitter, bitter 
pill for the Christian intellectual to have to begin at some other 
point than his finely honed assumptions. He has to begin with all 
the cowhands, milkmaids, tapsters, buggy vagabonds, ear-cropped 
runaways, and doltish pietists In the straw and dung of the stable. 
There and only there does God truly reveal himself. 

It Is because the Christian faith requires such utter nakedness 
that it has never been a very popular religion. Because so very 
few of us can pray honestly that we want to be children, few of us 
manage to see the Lord and few know what Christmas Is all about, 
"Except, of course, the saints," as T.S, Eliot says. The saints and 
the children.

Decisions! Decisions! 

One of them should be a buying decision 

As a college student, you learn to make 
decisions. One of the most important 
should concern life insurance . . . from 
Aid Association for Lutherans. AAL is 
a fraternalife insurance society for 
Lutherans . . . and that's a big ad- 
vantage to the Lutheran student. 

When it comes to life insurance, 
Lutheran college students get a bar- 
gain. That's because of age and ^ood 
health, and because AAL's rates are 
lovy to begin with. 

Another reason . . . Lutheran stu- 
dents can have certain guaranteed 
purchase options that assure them of 
being able to buy additional insur- 

ance later on regardless of health. 

AAL representatives (who are Luth- 
eran) serve all 50 states and five prov- 
inces of Canada . . . we're the largest 
fraternal life insurance society in 

Take time to talk to an AAL repre- 
sentative soon. Let him show you the 
advantages of starting a life insurance 
plan at your present age. And have him 
show you how dollars saved with AAL 
do double-duty . . . provide protec- 
tion for you while helping support 
Lutheran benevolent causes. Aid Asso- 
ciation for Lutherans, where there's 
common concern for human worth.

It's New Business We're After! 


Wolf's Whistl( 

A Stocked Roommate 

-By DickWolfsie 

school Ubrary, I feel I've got a 
better chance with my bookcase. 
However, I was reading Puritan 
literature and considering all the 
girls that study at the library 
there's not a better place to get 
your Wiggles Worth. I entered 
the library, unaware of the new 
open stacks policy. 

When the librarian Informed 
me that I'd have to find my own 
book, I went up the winding stair- 
case in search of HH, .p86sa2, 
Ser. 1, Vol. 1, part HI. copy 2, 
1949. 1 figured my chances were 
about as good as locating Guten- 
berg's Bible. I returned to the 
circulation desk. 

*I'm sorry, miss, but you'll 
Just have to give me a hint." 

•I'm terribly sorry, but I 
haven't the slightest idea where 
that book is. After aU, I only 
work here," 

Suddenly my roommate walked 
in and I decided to enlist his 
services in locating the book. We 
entered the stacks together. One 
hour laterlreturnedtothedesk... 

I'm sorry, lady, but you'll 
Just have to'Aelp me,* 

•Are you stilt looking for that 


•OH NO, I haven't even begun 
to look for the book, I've lost my 
roommate I* 

■That's Just horrible. You 
know, that's the fourth one we've 
lost today. Well, you'U Just have 
to nil out a card for him. If we 
find him, we'll put him on hold 
for you. 

■Is this really necessary?" 
•It's all tor your benefit young 
man. Please give his student call 
numbers and the condition of his 
body the last time you saw him," 
One week later I returned to 
the library in the hopes that ho 
had been found. 

■Excuse me, miss, but have 
you got Tom Jones?* 

•You mean that wonderful book 
by Henry Fielding?" 

•No, I mean the lousy room- 
mate of Dick Wolfsie, He's been 
lost in the library for a week." 
■Have you checked the card 

The ii^iole situation was be- 
coming more ludicrous, but I 
checked the card catalogue and 

8ur« enough,..he had been put on 
reserve, I went down to the first 
floor reserve desk. 

■Excuse me, miss, but have you 
got my roommate, Tom Jones on 

•Let me check. Ah yes, here 
we are," 

■Wonderful. I'd like to take him 
out please. You see, the whole 
thing is a mistake. He shouldn't 
be here at aU." 

■It certainly is a mistake. Ac- 
cording to all the reports we've 
gotten about Mr. Jones, he's 
supposed to be a great lover," 

•So what does that mean?" 

■It means we can't let him go 
out overnight." 

I left the library rather upset 
that I might never see my room- 
mate again. I returned bright and 
early the next morning, butsome- 
one had already checked him out* 
The whole thing seemed hope- 
less. I'd Just have to wait UU 
they made him Into a movie.

At Treeland 

Corlta Kent, of Los Angeles* 
Immaculate Heart College, will 
exhibit her 1969 series of seri- 
graphs at Treeland's Upper Gal« 
lery, 75 East Thousand Oaks 
Boulevard, Thousand Oaks, 
March 16 through April 13th. 

Ifer colorful, deceptively witty 
silk screen prints dance with 
buoyant hope. In them, words ■ 
bits of newspaper prints, a gro- 
cery list, the international sle- 
nal code or an ad tor United 
Air Lines, flit gaily across ab- 
stract patches of orange, red 
and yellow like charged up bill* 
boards. She has won an Inter, 
national reputation with her live- 
ly and original serigraphs. 
Thou^ in the past she has pro- 
duced only one series of seri- 
graphy a year during a furious 
two week stint each summer, 
her prints now hang in the coU 
lections of New York's Metro* 
politan Museum and Museum of 
Modern Art, and twenty other 
museums throughout the world. 

She has Illustrated national 
advertisements forWestinghouse 
and the Container Corporation 
of America, has made a set of 
jackets for Spice Island cook 
books, Christmas boxes for Jo* 
seph Magnin stores, a line of 
gift wrap for Neiman Marcus 
of Dallas and turned out designs 
fbr record album jackets. 

Corlta's Joy is a very special 
thing to be put In touch with be- 
cause it is neither abstract nor 
disembodied. It is process and 
relationship. She points to joy 
all around us and to where It is 
hidden within us. She discovers 
and reveals it the least expected 
places; in the concrete, every- 
day places and events. She trans- 
lates the Gospel Into Madison 
Avenue English and, zap, "the 
big G stands for Goodness," be- 
comes a breakfast table liturgy, 
a way of saying things for daily 

TTiere will be a reception Sun-

Baseballers Drop 3, Win 1 

Ml during the monsoon season that beset the Southern California 
area last month the California Lutheran College baseball team felt 
that things Just couldn't get any worse. When the rains abated they 
discovered that things didn't improve apprecIabIy,losing three games 
to Loyola and Occidental (two), 

but they did manage to acquire 
their first win of the season 
against UCSD, 10-2. 

The Kingsmen rattled the 
boards tor 15 hits spaced among 
all ten players who saw action 
against UCSD, John Stoddard led 
the assault with a 4-for.5 bar- 
rage consisting of a single, dou.

nine hits, struck out nine, and 
yielded two earned runs in going

The defeat at the hands 
of Loyola was engineered by four 
Lion hurlers who limited CLC 
to four hits, two struck by third 
sacker Gary Stepan. Starting pit- 
cher R.T. Howell was cuffed by 
Lion hitters for four runs in the 
first inning and four nms in the 
third, all earned.

this rotting dress, I don't know about you, but the stench of my 
teeth makes me haU sick. TTiey're decaying, but they'll never be 
fixed. That takes money. 

Listen to me without pity, now, tor I don't need your pity; it 
won't help me at all, and It won't help my hungry children. Lis- 
ten to me with understanding, If you can. Try to put yourself in 
my dirty, worn^jut, ill-fitting shoes — If you can stand the thou^t, 
much less the reality. 

What is poverty? Poverty is getting up every morning from a 
dirty and illness-stained mattress — a hard, lumpy mattress. 
Sheets? There are no sheets. "Hiey have long since been used 
for diapers, for there are no real diapers here, either. 

That smell? Ttiat other smell? You know what is is — plus 
sour milk and spoiled food. Sometimes It's mixed with the stench 
of onions cooked too often. Onions are cheap. 

We're like dogs in that we live In a world of smells and we've 
learned to identify most of them without searching them out. 
There Is the smell of young children who can't make it down that 
long path at night. There Is the smell of the filthy mattress. There 
is the smell of food gone sour because the refrigerator doesn't 
work, I don't remember when the refrigerator did work. I only know 
it takes money to get it fixed. And there is the smell of garbage. I 
could bury It, but where do you get a shovel without money? 

Poverty Is being tired — dog tired all the time. I can't remember 
when I wasn't tired, Wlien my last baby came, they told me at the 
hospital that I had chronic anemia caused by a poor diet, a bad case 
of worms, and the need for a corrective operation. 

When they told me about my condition, I listened politely. The 
poor are always polite, you know. Wecan'taiford to offend those who 
might decide to be big and give us something. The poor always lis- 
ten, for there really Isn't much we can say. If we were to say 
anything, it might prejudice somebody with a little money. What 
good would it do to say there is no money for iron pUls, better 
food, or necessary medicine? 

The idea of an operation is frightening even if you have the 
money. If I had dared, I would have laughed. Who would have taken 
care of my children while I was in the hospital for a prolonged 
period? ITie last time I left my children with their grandmother 
was when I had a Job. I came home to find the baby covered with 
fly specks and wearing a diaper that had not been changed since 
I left. When the dried diaper was removed, bits of my baby's flesh 
were on it. My middle child was playing with a sharp piece of 
glass, and my oldest was playing alone at the edge of an unprotected 
lake. On my job I made $22 a week. A nursery school charges $20 
a week for three children. So I had to quit my job. 

Poverty is dirt. You may say, in your clean clothes and coming 
from your clean house, "Anybody can be clean," Let me ejqilain 
housekeeping with no money. For breakfast, I give my children 
grits with no margarine, or cornbread made without eggs or oleo. 
For one thing, that kind of food doesn't use up many dishes. What 
dishes there are, I wash in cold water. No soap. Even the cheap- 
est soap has to be saved for washing the old sheets I use for the 
baby's diapers. 

Look at these cracked red hands. Once I saved up for two months 
to buy a jar of Vaseline for my hands and for the baby's diaper rash. 
When I had the money and went to buy the Vaseline, the price had 
gone up two cents, and I didn't have another two cents. Every day 
I have to decide whether I can bear to put these cracked, sore 
hands into that cold water and strong soap. Why don't I use hot 
water? It takes money to get something with which you can heat 
it. Hot water is a luxury. We don't have luxuries. 

You would be surprised if I told you my age. I look 20 years older 
than I am; my back has been bent over tubs so long I can't stand up 
straight any more. I can't remember when I did anything but wash, 
but we're still dirty. I just can't seem to keep up with all the wash- 
ing. Every night I wash every stitch my school-age child had on and

just hope the clothes will be dry enough to wear when morning 

Poverty Is staying up all night when it Is cold to guard the one 
fire we have; one spark striking the newspaper we have on our 
walls would mean my sleeping children would die In the flames. In 
the summer, poverty is watching gnats and flies devour by baby's 
tears when he cries, which is much of the time. I've never been In 
an air-conditioned house. I've just heard folk talk about them. Our 
screens are torn, but we pay so little rent that I know it's foolish 
to even talk about getting them fixed. Poverty means insects in 
your food. In your nose, in your eyes, and crawling over you while 
you sleep. Poverty is children with runny noses, even In the sum- 
mer. Paper handkerchiefs take money, and you need all your rags 
fbr other things. Antihistamines are for the rich. 

Poverty is asking for help. Have you ever had to swallow what 
pride you had left and ask for help, knowing your children will suf. 
fer more if you don't get it? Think about asking for a loan from a 
relative, If that's the only way you can really understand asking 
for help. 

Ill tell you how asking for help feels: You find out where the 
office Is, the one from which paupers are supposed to get help. 
When you find it, you circle that block four or five times trying to 
get up nerve enough to go In and beg. Finally, the thought of your 
children's need and suffering pushes you through Uie door. Every- 
body Is very busy and official. After an eternity, a woman comes 
out to you and you tell her you need help, and you force yourself 
to look at her. 

She isn't the one you need to see. The first one never is. She 
sends you to someone else and after spilling your poverty and 
shame all over the desk, you find out this isn't the right office. 
Then you repeat the whole procedure. It doesn't get any easier. 
You ask for help In two or three places, until you're sick of the 
whole procedure, but you're always told to wait. You are told why 
you have to wait but you don't really hear, because the dark heavy 
cloud of shame and despair deafens you with Its roar of recrimina- 

Poverty is remembering — remembering quitting school In 
Junior high school because the nice children from nice homes are 
so cruel about your clothes and your smell. (There have always been 
smells — you think you should have been a bloodhound.) I remem- 
ber when I quit and the attendance teacher came to see my mother. 
She told him I was pregnant, I wasn't but my mother knew they 
wouldn't make me go back to school if she told them that. She 
thought I could get a job and bring home some money. I had jobs 
off and on, but never long enou^ to earn much. 

I remember mostly being married. 1 was so young. I'm still 
young, but you can't tell It. In another town, for a little while 
we had most of the things you have: a little house with lights, 
hot water, and everything. Then my husband lost his Job. For a lit- 
tle while there was some unemployment insurance, but soon all our 
nice things were repossessed and we moved back here — I was 
pregnant at the time. This house didn't look so bad when we first 
moved in. Every week It got worse, though. Nothing was ever fixed. 
Soon we didn't have any money at all. 

My husband got a few odd jobs, but everything went for food — 
just as It does now. I'll never know how we lived through three 
years and three babies, but we did. After that last baby, I just 
plain destroyed my marriage. Would you want to bring another baby 
into this filth? I didn't, and birth-control measures take money. I 
knew the day my husband left that he wasn't coming back, but neither 
of us said anything. What was there to say? I hope he lias been 
able to climb out of this mess somewhere. He never could hope 
to do it here, with us to drag him down. 

It was after he left that I first asked for help. I finally got it: 
$78 a month for the four of us. That's all we'll ever get. That's 
why there Is no soap, no medicine, no needles, no hot water, no 
aspirin, no hand cream, no shampoo — none of those things ever. 
And forever, I pay $20 a month for rent. The rest goes for food: 
grits, corn-meal, rice, beans, and milk. 

Poverty is looking into a future colored only the blackest black. 
There is no hope. Your children wouldn't play with my children; you 
wouldn't allow It. My boys will someday turn to boys who steal to 
get what they need. I can already see them behind prison bars, but 
it doesn't bother me as It would you. They'll be better off behind 
prison bars than they would be behind the bars of my poverty and 
despair. They'll find the freedom of alcohol and drugs — the only 
freedom they'll ever know. 

My daughter? She'll have a life just like mine, unless she's pretty 
enought to become a prostitute. I'd be smart to wish her dead al- 

You say there are schools? Sure there are, but my children have 
no paper, no pencils, no crayons, no clothes, no anything worth* 
while or useful. All they have Is worms, pinkeye, infections of all 
sorts all the time. They aren't hungry, but they are undernourished. 
There are surplus commodity programs some places, I hear, but 
not here. Our county said It would cost too much. There Is a school 
lunch program, but I have two children who are already too damaged 
for that to do them any good. 

Yes, I know there are health clinics. Iliey are In the towns, and 
I live eight miles from any town. I can walk that far, but my chil- 
dren can't, and I can't carry them. 

I have a neighbor who will take me to town when he goes, but he 
expects to be paid one way or another. No thanks; at least the hungry 
children I have are legitimate. You may know my neighbor. He Is 
the large fellow who spends his time at the gas station, the barber 
shop, and the corner store complaining loudly about the govern- 
ment spending money on the Immoral mothers of illegitimate chU- 

Poverty is an acid that eats Into pride until pride Is burned out. 
It Is a chisel that chips at honor until honor is pulverized. You 
might do something if you were in my situation — (or a week or a 
month. Would you do it year after year, getting nowhere? 

Even I can dream. I dream of a time when there Is money — 
money for the right kind of food, tor medicine, for vitamins, for a 
toothbrush, for hand cream, for a hammer and nails, for screens, 
fbr a shovel, for paint, for sheets, for needles and thread and . . . 
but I know It's a dream. Just like you know It'a a dream when you 
see yourself as president. 

Most, though, I dream of the time when I have to tell my story 
Just once each visit, to Just one person, I'm tired of proving my 
poverty over, and over, and over, 

I leave my despair long enough to tell you this: I did not come 
from anoU\er place, and I did not come from another time, I'm 
here, now, and there are others like me all around you.

Tutorial Service At CLC 

There Is a continuing need on the part of a number of students 
to secure competent and adequate tutoring in specific areas of study. 
Some receive this on an informal, personal basis; some, through 
student club activity. But many who need it do not. 

Part of the unique character of California Lutheran College is an 
Interest on the part of students in the personal and academic wel- 
fare of others. Participation In this program as a Tutor can be one 
of the most significant ways In which this concern can be expressed. 
This provides a concrete avenue through which a specific service 
can be rendered to others. Hiose who quality are Invited and urged 
to assist in order that all those who need remedial or supportive 
tutoring may receive It. 

A. The Tutor 

U Any student who is properly certified for participation in the 
tutorial program shall be designated as an Academic Tutor 
and as a member of the 'I^lto^iaJ Service. 

2. A tutor must be certified for participation by his department 
head in order to give instruction in a specific academic 
area. He must have a minimum GPA of 3,00 in his tutorial 
field and a 2,50 GPA overall. 

3. A tutor must register at the Tutorial Service Office all areas 
In which he is certified to instruct. He must also indicate the 
approximate number of hours that he Is prepared to give each 

— 4- . When a tutor has given a minimum of 30 hours of servlc©^ 
during any one quarter, he shall have the designation "Aca- 
demic Tutor" placed on his official academic record for that 
5. Each tutor shall be responsible for bringing to the Tutorial 
Service Office a card showing the number of hours given 
to an individual student and signed by the same and by the 
tutee's professor. 

B, Tlie Tutee 

1. The tutee shall apply to his professor for written authoriza- 
tion recommending that he secure tutoring and entitling him to 
the same. 

2. Ttie tutee shall present this authorization to the Tutorial 
Service and ask for the assignment of a tutor or for assign- 
ment to a group, 

3. The tutee shall then take the initiative and seek out the as- 
signed tutor and establish hours for work which are mu- 
tually convenient. 

4. A tutee may make private arrangements for tutoring with a 
specific tutor but, if the latter is to receive recognition for 
this work, this arrangement must be properly authorized 
and registered with the Tutorial Service. 

C. The Administration 

1. AdmlnistraUvely the Tutorial Service shall be under the 
Jurisdiction of the Dean of the College since it Is believed 
that this type of service is intrinsic to the academic life of 
the school. 

2. The planning, structuring, and implementing of this pro* 
gram shall be given over to the Scholastic Honor Society fbr 
collaborative work with the Dean of the College. 

3. Procedures and forms for certification, registration, and 
record keeping shall be developed by the Scholastic Honor 
Society and approved by the Dean. 

4. A paid student co'Ordinator shall handle the records and make 
the assignments. 

5. Funds tor Implementing this proposal shall be budgeted by 
the Dean of the College.

T^e present Selective Service System should, I believe, be abolished 
and replaced by a volunteer military. 

1 regard the present system (the draft) as tuiconstltutional, immoral, 
and detrimental to our national Interest. It Is also a rather poor way 
to raise an army. In this column, I will outline the constitutional and 
moral arguments against the draft (1 will set forth some of the practi- 
cal arguments against the draft in a later column.) 

I have chosen to write on the draft primarily because it provides 
a clear-cut Issue between two opposite moral philosophies — the 
rights of the individual versus the power of the group; Individualism 
versus collectivism; or, in ethical terms, e^lsm versus altruism. 
Altruism Is the morality which holds that the Individual has no in- 
herent rights, and Ihat his supreme moral duty is to serve his fel- 
low man. Altruism Is the morality on which the draft is based. 

Article I, section 8, of the Constitution, gives Congress the power 
to declare war, and to raise an army and a navy. The power to do 
this by way of the draft, however, was not explicitly given or denied. 
(Article I, section 8, also grants Congress the power to build post 
offices and post roads — but we don't hear of people being drafted 
to work in the post office, do we?) 

The primary constitutional arguments, however, are contained In 
the Thirteenth Amendment and in the Ninth Amendment, The TUr. 
teenth, of course, Is the one which outlaws slavery or Involuntary 
servitude. In Bailey vs. Alabama (1911) the Supreme Court stated 
that although this amendment was originally concerned with Negro 
slavery, it was not by any means limited to that. Its purpose, the 
Court said, was to abolish any kind of slavery, whatever its name. 
And the draft, I suggest, is clearly an example of involuntary ser- 

TTie Ninth Amendment presents an even more basic moral argu. 
ment against the draft. And it Is here that we get into the primary 
ethical considerations which I mentioned above. 

The Ninth Amendment reads as follows: '"ITie enumeration in the 
Constitution of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or dis- 
parage others retained by the people." Man has only one fundamen- 
tal right — the right to life. He cannot enjoy any other rights unless 
he can be the possessor and controller of his own life. In ethical 
terms, the rlg^t to life means the right to exist for the sake of 
oneself. It Is this right which altruism denies (Altruism proclaims 
that you exist for the sake of your fellow man). It is this rlgtit 
which the draft denies. And ft is this right, along with the ri^ts 
to liberty and property, which the Ninth Amendment protectsi 

The purpose of the Ninth Amendment is to protect various rights 
which arenotmentlonedspeclflcally in the Constitution, Thus the rigjit 
to life, while not specifically mentioned, Is nonetheless protected. 

The draft assumes. In effect, that the rights of some people can 
be protectedonlybyforcingotherpeopletofl^t for them. It assumes, 
in other words, that we must figjit wars in the name of freedom, by 
destroying the freedom of those who are to do the flghtlngl 

Some people try to Justify the draft on the grounds that a citizen 
has the duty to defend his country. This however, confuses the con* 
cept of duty with the concept of value. I value my country very 
highly, and therefore I am perfectly willing to fight for it. However, 
It Is somettilng else entirely to say that the government has the right 
to force me to fight for the country whether I value It or not! 
(What if the government decided to attack Canada? Would it be my 
**duty" to help conquer the Canadians?) Freely chosen values are the 
principles by which free men live. A government enforced "duty" 
(such as the draft) however, implies that the state is superior to 
the individual. This is the principle of dictatorship. 

(^ore complete details on the moral-Constitutional ImpUcatlonsof 
the draft may be found in "The Constitution and The Draft" by H.M. 
Holzer and Phyllis Holzer, in the October and November 1967 issues 
of The Objectivlst magazine. Also, In "The Wreckage of the Con- 
sensus," In Capitalism: the Unknown Ideal, by Rand, Branden, Green- 
span, and Hessen.) 

To Humanity 

At dusk the savage lion mauls the fawn. 

While the buck and the doe gallop off with the panicking herd; 

At night the Jackal gnaws the spoil, the bird 

Will pick the bloody Iwnes that dry at dawn. 

The sounds of life (coarse screams of smog-gagged air), 

The colors (only adjectives for power). 

And stench of sex seduce our sense: the flower 

Will thrive in soU but die In hippie hair. 

The Lord to man His very Image gave. 

Subjecting beast and bud to his weak will, 

His wisdom dressed in love: of all, the best. 

But, trading God's high light for earth's dank grave. 

He chose Instead to hide, to use, to kill. 

And made to mourn the day He made to rest,

Please note the lack of printed copy 
in this week's edition of THE MOUNTCLEF 
ECHO. Despite the concern, vitality, 
intelligence, and great sense of respon- 
sibility of the students of California 
Lutheran College, only one article was 
turned in for this issue. Mr. William 
Kwapinski, who is certainly not unknown 
to the C.L.C. community, is the only 
student who bothered to write anything 
for this issue. Other articles which 
appear in this ECHO were submitted an an 
earlier date, but their publication had 
to be postponed until this week, for 
several reasons. 

The MOUNTCLEF ECHO is the only news 
organ of the students of California 
Lutheran College. It is student-run and 
student-financed. , All articles for pub- 
lication are to be received by the ECHO 
by Noon on the Monday preceeding the 
date of publication. All articles are 
to be typed and double-spaced on one 
side of the paper, only.

Where Were You 

When The Lights Went Out 

Wolf 'sWhistle 

Parity Party 

by Dick Wolfsie 

Institutions to infiltrate the col- 
lege scene Is the Panty Raid. 
Many years ago panty Raids were 
old hat, but not many students 
like stealing old hats, soarather 
precocious group of college sen- 
iors got together at this very 
University and decided to make 
some changes. 

It was our very own Seymour 
Skin who In the year 1900 first 
approached the administration 
and asked for a change. We take 
you back to the turn of the century. 
Seymour, then president of the 
school, has stuck his head In the 
University president's door. 

•WELL, WELL, Mr. Skin. 
Come right In. After all I've 
beard about you, I'm surprised 
you got your head in the door. 
Now what can I do for you.* 

'Sir I'd UkepermlssiOQtohave 
a Panty Raid." 

•What the hell is Panty Raid? 
It soimds like a spray that kills 

•Oh- no, Sir. A panty raid Is 
euctly like a bat raid except 
that instead of stealing hats you 
steal panties.* 

•I suppose its okay with me, but 
how many people wear panties on 
their head." 

■I'm afraid, Sir, that you're 
missing the whole point. Tomor- 
row evening at ten oclock I want 
to sneak Into the dorm with atx>ut 
6000 guys and see all the girls In 
their nighties." 

•That sounds fine, Mr. Skin, but 
what about the campus guards," 

'Believe me, sir.Ihavenoldea 
what time the guards get in their 


•Well, Mr. Skin, administra- 
tively I don't particularly like 
the idea, but biologically I think 
its great. 1 wish you the best of 
luck and I hope everything comes 
off okay," 

*I think you'd better rephrase 
that, Sir." 

And so with theblesslngs of the 
president, Seymour decided to 
visit the Dean of Men and ask 
his opinion. When he reached 
the Dean of Men's office no one 
was working. In fact, no one was 
in si^t and cobwebs had formed. 
•This MUST be the place," he 
thought. Finally Seymour saw the 
secretary and he asked for the 
Dean of Men. . . 

•Excuse me Miss, can the Dean 
of Men l>e disturbed." 

•Not any more than he already 

When Seymour finally found the 
Dean of Men, he spt^ce up like a 
man. . . 

•SSSSSlr mi'd like to talk to you 
about a panty raid." 

•What alxjut it Seymour?" 

•CCCCCCCan I have one?" 

Listen, Seymour, if you can get 
two panties, who am I to say 

Seymour's name has since gone 
down in history (as did his under- 
wear). Psychology majors have 
tried to psychoanalyze Seymour 
from the record he left In an 
attempt to detect any perversion. 

In 1906 Seymourwas sentenced 
to ten years in the MaxweQ 
Hotel for statutory rape. Sey- 
mour, I am sad to report raped 
a statue. 

Explanotion, Pleose 

Mr. Ted Larson 
California Lutheran College 

Dear Ted: 

At the open meeting last Wed- 
nesday, February 14th, In which 
proposed course on the New Lett 
was under discussion, you made 
a rather sweeping statement 
wherein you referred to "the 
precarlousness of CLC's aca- 
demic standing." I must confess 
that I do not understand what 
you are talking about. 

I would appreciate it, there- 
fore, If you would document your 
statement so that there might 
be a common understanding and 
a common knowledge of what the 
situation Is.

Seniors- *"^2S'°" 
Forget It 


By Bob Passelh 

For as long as we all can re- 
member, there has been talk of 
a north campus. This year's 
seniors say to forget It. They 
have decided to make the long 
discussed park where the lonely 
walk exists a reality. 

The seniors have decided to 
donate their hard work to CLC 
In making pit barbecues, filling 
in the streambed with rot^ks, 
putting In sprinklers, and plant- 
ing grass. 

Seniors we need your helpll 
Not only do we need strong 
backs but we need also Inge- 
nuity and ideas and most im. 
portant oC "all MONEY, We 
need as many of you as possi. 
ble to give a portlonof your room 
deposit to the treasury to pay 
tor the expenses In this project. 
Some funds are appropriated but 
we need more to make U a big 
success and something that fol- 
lowing classes will remember 
us for. We are a small class, 
but let's show everyone that we 
can do Itll 

So we say forget the north 
campus but don't forget to help 
your class to make this a thing 
of reality and not a far out 
dream. Contact Craig McNey, 
Ray Olsen, Cheryl Jessup, or 
Sherry Amundsen to tell them 
what you're willing to donate. 

This year the eleventh twelfth, 
and thirteenth of April rolls 
around again. This means the 
AWS Mother -Daughter Wt-ekend. 

It's time for the far-ranglng 
AWS to pull itself together and 
put on the Big Thing of the Year. 
It's going to be a lot of work 
and a lot of Uin again. We'd 
like every AWS member to have 
a chance to share an experience 
like this with her mother.

In Loco Parentis 

by Dick Wolfsie 

AH, PARENTS WEEKEND Is here ag«ln (YIPEEX Mommies tod 
Daddies from all over the world (Scarsdale, New York, and Um 
GlUDd) come to visit our campus to see where three thousand 
dollars a year Is going. 

Parent's Weekend presents a problem similar to Parent's Day at a 
day camp, for It Is on that one special day that your counselor doesnl 
let you play In the horse manure. 

A wwkend Uke this usually Ijeglns very poorly. The student waits 
hours for Mbmmy and Daddy at the airport and only later discovers 
they took the train. Finally they are all united In front of the dorm. 

*Oh Mommle, Oh Daddle, I'm so glad you could come. Oh all 
the girls are dying to meet you, and tomorrow we can go shonilng 
and then watch TV In the girl's dorm. 

■It sounds very exciting, son.* 

And so the weekend Is off to a quick start. Mothers, as always, 
are rather overly enthusiastic. . . *0h It's Just beautiful here. Oh, 
to l>e In college again. Ob you're just so lucky. Oh I think I'm going 
to die.* Fathers usually react a Uttle differently. . .*0h, its so 
expensive here. Oh to be childless again. Oh I think fm golnc to kill 

The day ends though confusion has pervaded the wtiole afternoon. 
Back in her room Doris tells her roommates how Impressed her 
mother was, but meanwhile, beck at Howard Johnson's (with a sink 
outside the bathroom) Mama has Ideas' of her own. . . . 

'Harold, I want Doris to transfer.* 

'Zelma, go to sleep, you're tired.* 

■Harold, she must transfer.* 

"She's been to four schools already, and she's only a freshman.* 

•Did you see those disgusting girls that she rooms with?* 

•They looked Uke perfectly respectable girls to me.* 

'Exactly Harold, they were all trying to fool us. I can't stand 
a girl that looks clean but thinks dirty. Oh, I lust can't bear to think 
of my baby sleeping in that dungeon with those horrible girls. 
Maybe if we called her up she'd like to sleep in the motel room 
with us.* 

*I thought we agreed to stop that after she graduated from high 

•Oh Harold, you're so heartless. How would you Uke lo sleep In 
a dorm like that. . .Never mind, don't answer that.* 

'Look, let's go to bed already, Zelma. We have two comfortable 
twin beds and • 

*And thats another thing, why did you get twin beds. I thought this 
was going to be a vacation.* 

■You're right, I should have gotten two rooms.*

ERd The Droft (Port II) 

In my last article, I outlined the moral and constitutional arguments 
against the draft and In favor of a volunteer military. In this column 
I shall set forth some of the practical arguments on the subject. I wUl 
not go Into each argument in depth, since space does not permit. 
I shall confine myself, rather, to the major ones, (Articles and 
position papers, giving detailed and extensive arguments against 
the draft, are available from the Council for a Volunteer MUltary, 
1212 East 59th Street, Chicago, Dllnols 60637.) 

Dr. Walter 01 (of the University of Washington) presented a re. 
port to the National Conference on the Draft, at the Unlversl^ of 
Chicago In 1966, In which he estimated that the cost of a fully 
volunteer military would be $4,05 billion per year. The savings to 
the national economy due to the more efficient use of manpower 
however, would run up to $5 billion per year, according to Dr. 01. 
His estimates, furthermore, were based on Pentagon reports which 
show that 70 per cent of present volunteers would volunteer anyway, 
even if the draft were eliminated (the remaining 30 per cent are the 
so-called "reluctants"). According to Brace K. Chapman, writing 
In the March 1967 Issue of NATIONAL REVIEW, It is the rapid turn- 
over of these "reluctants" which largely necessitates the draft In 
the first place. 

Regarding ways to attract volunteers, Mr, Chapman goes on to 
state that. In addition to salary Increases, the quality of military 
housing can be Improved, Also, the very concept of a volunteer 
military would remove the stigma of compulsion, thus making mili- 
tary service more respectable from a psychological standpoint, 
"Working from the other direction," writes Chapman, "the total 
number of volunteers needed could be cut by hiring more civilians 
to fill the 85 per cent of military positions that are non-combatant 
In nature and by lowering, . . the unnecessarily high mental and phy. 
sical qualification standards for induction," 

Dr. Milton Friedman, noted University ofChlcago economist, main- 
tains that the low wages paid to draftees constitutes a tax-ln-kind 
on those men. An American draftee receives about as much pay as 
a collective-farm worker In Communist East Europe. Friedman states, 
"Conscription Is a tax in kind — that is, forced labor Imposed on the 
young men wlio are drafted or who volunteer to serve because of the 
threat of the draft." 

The draft, furthermore. Is a cause of many headaches and unsatis- 
factory situations in the Army, Brig. General LJ), Smith states, for 
Instance (>1IL1TARY REVIEW, June 1964), that the draft Is the main 
cause of high manpower turnover and 'personnel turbulence ... 
the basic problem of the Army." Commanders complain, says Gen., 
Smith, that " *as soon as wc are able to operate as a unit, the train. 
ed men leave and we have to start all over again.* " Major General 
Harold Maddux stated, in 1959, ''We need drastic changes In pay 
and attitudes to upgrade a military career In the eyes of the nation. 
We can't get that change with large numbers of men compelled to 
serve against their will." 

Some people maintain that a volunteer military would "exploit" 
the poor people, and Negroes In particular. This argument Is, In my 
humble opinion, pure poppycock. According to Mr, Chapman, in his 
article (mentioned above), If every qualified Negro male decided 
to Join the Army, the Army would still have only one fourth of the 
men It needs. Furthermore, there are approximately twice as many 
poor whites In the nation as poor Negroes, Most volunteers nowa- 
days are white, A volunteer military, with Increased pay and better 
living conditions, would attract more whites as well as blacks. 
Finally, I might add that an Increase In pay and in living standards 
would make the military competitive with middle class economic 
life. Thus, voluntarism would have an even greater ai^eal to non- 
poor people than does the current military system, 

A final charge sometimes hurled against voluntarism Is that It 
would lead to a military takeover of the United States, llils charge, 
I believe. Is even more rtdlculous than the one atniut "exploitation" 
of poor people. First of all, buck privates and apprentice seamen 
do not formulate U.S, military policy. Our military policy Is formu- 
lated by experts In the Pentagon, who are going to be lifetime career 
officers regardless of whether or not we happen to have a volunteer 
military. Secondly, the United States has had a volunteer Army 
throughout most of Its existence, and yet we have never had a military 
takeover. Finally, it Is Important to note that Napoleon, Franco, 
Trujlllo, Mussolini, Hitter, and the Soviet rulers, have all used the 
draft In order to support their dictatorial governments, 


What Shall W« Say? 

by Ursula Solek 

What, Anally, shall we say 

In that last moment 

When we will l)e confronted 

By the Unimaginable, 

The One 

Who could not be measured 

Or contained 

In space or time, 

Who was Love 


What shall we answer 

When the question Is asked 

About our undeeds 


In his name — 

In the name of him 

For whose sake we promised 

To have courage. 

To abandon everything? 

Shall we say 
That we didn't know — 
That we couldnt hear the clatter 
Of hearts breaking — 
MUllons of them — 
In lonely rooms. In alleys 
And prisons and In bars? 

Shall we explain 

That we thought It mattered 

lliat buildings were constructed 

And maintained 

In his honor — 

TTiat we were occupied 

With the arrangements 

Of hymns and prayers 

And the proper, the responsible 

Of doing things? 

Shall we tell him 

That we had to take care 

Of the orderly definition of 

So that there was no time 
To listen to the sobbing 
Of little ones 
Huddled In comers. 
Or the silent despair 
Of those already beyond the sob« 


Or shall we way this too: 

That we were afraid — 

That we were keeping busy with 

all this 
To avoid the confrontation 
With the reality of his meaning 
Which would lead us to repen- 
tance — 

That It was fear which kept us 
Hiding In church pews 
And in Important boards and

Support Your Locol Moviemaker 

Far and away the funniest western since "Cat Ballou" is the new 
James Garner horse opry "Support Your Local Sheriff." 

From first scene to last the film rollicks in a kind of creative 
spontaneity seldom seen on the screen. 

The film begins somVerly with a funeral procession winding its 
way up the Boot Hill type location. A group of dutiful townspeople 
gather around the casket as the minister, played by Henry Jones, 
speaks a few fitting words for the deceased, "whatever Ws real name 
was," who died of an unknown disease. "We can only tiope that, what- 
ever it was, it weren't contagious." But just as that point someone 
notices gold In the twttom of the freshly-dug grave and the entire 
formal gathering dissolves Into a trantic fracas, with the mayor's 
prim daughter standing in an open grave, belting all comers aside 
with a shovel and bellowing: "Get out of my gold mine!" 

Thanks To All 

Dear Editor: 

I would like to take this space 
to personally thank the cast, 
crew, and all of the people who 
worked hard and long on Stalag 
17 to make it the success that I 
think it was. Undoubtedly, there 
were those who came to see the 
show for reasons other than think- 
ing it would be good. To the 
cast, who lived with the play 
for eight weeks, these people left 
with a different Impression. 

Speaking for the Drama Club, 
if I may, I would like to thank 
you, the audience, for supporting 
us. It is very gratifying to see 
such support from students and 
community for this new venture 
at CLC. 

I thank everyone for their com. 
pllments to me about the show, 
but It would have been nothing 
without first, the help andenthu* 
siasm of Dr Adams, Mr. Wolf, 
Mr Richard, and Mrs. Powers. 
It would have been nothing with- 
out the backing from the Drama 
Club; without a great group of 
hard-working women on the tech- 
nical crew; but most of all, 
without the case of devoted, en- 
thusiastic, hard-working men that 
I had the prlvlledge to be a part 
of. I thank the cast for a per- 
sonal reason — the best company 
of actors I have ever had the 
pleasure to work with. 

Thank you all, 
Don W. Haskell 

^■Wlth the arrival of liundreds of gold-hungry rascals and rene* 
gades, the town suddently finds It needs a sheriff, James Gamer, a 
lackadaisical drifter who ultimately plans to make his way to Aus- 
tralla, takes on the Job "on a temporary basis." 

His first act is arresting the son of the most Important, and the 
most dangerous man In the territory and attempthig to throw him 
Into jail, only to be told by the mayor, Harry Morgan: '*the bars 
ain't arrove yet," 

From there on It Is a pitched battle between the family patriarch, 
superbly played by Walter Brennan. and Garner. 

There are Innumerable memorable moments along the way. 

Gamer, on being handed the Sheriffs badge notes the bullet hole 
In the center but comments that the badge probably saved the last 
sheriff's life, "It would have," Harry Morgan comments droHy, 
"If it weren't for all those other bullets flying around," 

Joan Hackett, playing the mayor's daughter, Is perfectly prim and 
prissy, 'Tubertv hit her hard," her father explains. 

Jack Elam, whose parts have In the past been reserved for the 
leering heavy, should receive the kind of Academy Award considera- 
tlon that Lee Marvin received when he shifted to comedy. 

Director Burt Kennedy, veteran of numerous westerns, has kept 
the pace so lively in this film that popcorn sales should lag wherever 
it plays. 

As for the writer (J could tell you his name but you probably 
wouldn't believe me — see the film) it is hard to believe that 
he turned out a script this good on a three-day creative binge. 

It Is a rare film that can maintain Interest this Intense over 
a ntnety-mlnute period, but that Is the kind of fUm this Is — rare 
In every respect.

New, Improved, CLC C.L.C. Food 

Let us all watch the food this weekend. The purpose of such action 
Is to see whether It improves. Remember, Mother.Daughter weekend 
runs from 11 April to 13 April, Let's hope for an Improvement In the 
quality of food then; we sure haven't seen any such Improvement 
during the past couple of months. After all, parents, and guests 
are more important than students, anyway. 

Perhaps the time has come to let the cat out of the bag. Since 
February, the Szabo Food Service has been operating the California 
Lutheran College cafeteria, and our food has been improving (or 
at least It was supposed to), Befbre Szabo came in, they told us 
that there would be no Improvement within the first two weeks. 
How right they werel There hasn't been any real Improvement 
after that Initial two-week period, either. 

For a rather significant amount of time, the food In the CLC 
cafeteria was mediocre (to pay a compliment), and the students 
have complained proportionately. Late last year, the CLC admlnis. 
tration made moves to improve the food we were fed. The Szabo 
Food Service was Introduced to CLC by a member of the CLC 
Board of Regents who employes them in his business. Because 
of this connection with a member of the Regents, the Szabo Food 
Service assured us that they wished to make a good Impression 
at CLC. Apparently, though, Szabo Food Service Isnt trying to break 
any records making good impressions. 

The only "Improvements" so far noticed are: 

1, a sll^t decrease In the amount of dried food (from the last 
meal) on our tableware; 

2, an elimination of "steak night," about the only meal that CLC 
students even half-heartedly look forward to, (The students were 
merely resigned to the other meals.) 

3, Individual servings of salads fereen). Instead of U-serve your- 
self. This really Isn't an Improvement. College students, for the 
most part, are perfectly capable of lifting their own lettuce, 

4, the bleu-cheese dressing (or roquefort dressing, or whatever 
It is) Is even more rancid than befbre; 

5. an Increase In the amount of fat In the lamb chops. 

6. a decrease In the variety of jelly for toast and or peanut 
butter and jelly sandwiches (when the student cannot stomach the 
regular stuff): .^.^ . ._— — 

7. after 5:45 p.m, the student doesn't have to worry his mind over 
what he will eat. There Is no choice; half of the dinner hour to go 
and you only get the junk that nobody else wants (for both the entree 
and the dessert). 

Shall we all voice our opinions on the new. Improved CLC fbod? 
The CLC contract with Szabo guarantees us the opportunity to dls*

CLC Students Visit Arizona Indians 

A program marking the begln- 
ntngs of the study of primitive 
art at CLC was Initiated the last 
weekend In February through a 
four day student trip to Arizona. 
In the Fall quarter, a course In 
Primitive Art had been offered 
but not until Joseph Sekakaku, 
Chief of the Hop! Nation, Invited 
a CLC group to visit his people 
on their reservation did students 
really have an opportunity to 
explore the lives of a people with 
a culture so removed from the 
white western world. Mr. Jerry 
Slattum, the faculty sponsor of 
the outing, had arranged the visit 
with "Chief Joe" as his people 
call him and so the eight member 
group spent the weekend on the 
M'i^is of the Hopi Indian reser- 

Enhancing an appreciation of 
the art of the Hopls was get- 
ting to know these warm people. 
It seems amazing in this modern 
world of technology that the In. 
dians are still remarkably Isola. 
ted and separated from the rest 
of the world. Wfi cannot truly 
say that the Hopls live in pover- 
ty and yet the chief expressed 
his desire to see his people im- 
prove their homes and jobs and 
build a high school, the lack of 
which Is part of the reason for 
so many young people leaving the 
reservation and abandoning the 
traditions of their people. Wl:li 
pride and insight Chief Joe 
pointed out that the Indians need 
help not charity and he Is cur- 
rently working on plans to im. 
prove the reservation utilizing 
the resources and talents of his 
own people. 

For the students Interested In 
primitive art and people, the stay 
on the reservation also held high- 
lights other than the conversa- 
tions with the Chief. After touring 
some of the villages rather pre- 
cariously balanced at the edge of 
the steep mesa cliffs, the group 
was offered a rare treat In the 
form of an invitation to witness 
a series of Katchlna dances to 
be held In the underground Kivas 
which are the worshipcentersfor 
these Indians. The dances In- 
cluded masked costumed figures 
with drums, and singing In a 
ceremony to pay homage to the 
Katchlna spirits so important In 
the Hopl religion. The students 
had several opportunities to meet 
Hopl families in their homes both 
to talk with these very gracious 
and friendly people and to pur- 
chase some of the very skillfully 
crafted Katchlna dolls, pottery, 
and occasional basketry for 
which the Hopis are justly 
famous. Tourist mass production 
has not spoiled all the art of 
the area and many of the workmen 
still take pride in the original, 
ity and craftsmanship of their 
aesthetically rich products. 

Since the Hupi reservation is 
centrally located for Indian art 
several interesting side trips 
such as to the ruins at Monte- 
zuma's Castle and Wu:>atki Na- 
tnna; Monument where made. 

Although the visit to the Hopl 
Indians was the prime Interest 
to some of the students, the two 
days spent in Plmenix andScotts- 
dale were especially worthwhile 
to three members of the Winter 
quarter's Architectural Style 
class. Aside from being guests 
at the Phoenix Indian High School, 
the rest of the time in the Phoe. 
nix area was spent enjoying a tour 
of the Tallesln Fellowship, a 
school set up by Frank Lloyd 
Wright, devoted to the perpetua- 
tlon of his concepts or archi- 
tecture. The group visited sev- 
eral of the Wright structures such 
as the Boomer House, the Rose 
Pauson ruins, the David Wright 
home, the Adeleman cottage, the 
Blltmore Hotel, and Ascension 
Lutheran Church. Phoenix, a city 
refreshingly aware of the possl. 
billtles of creative architecture 
also provided several other ex. 
perlences, notably the Solari 
House and the new Scottsdale Civ- 
ic Center designed by the archi- 
tect Gonzales who is also now 
planning a complex for the Hopl 

At the end of the exhausting 
trip the concensus of the mem- 
bers of the group was that a 
more vital interest and real 
awareness of the people, places, 
and experiences had been 
achieved which could never have 
been the result of simply study, 
ing these art forms in the reg. 
ular structure of the college 
situation. It is hoped that be- 
cause of the success of this 
learning experience that another 
trip to other Southwest Indians 
or to Southern Mexico may soon 
further expand the study of prim- 
itive art at CLC. 

The students Wyatt Ball, Mar- 
garet Ford, Wyman Hollo^vay, 
Cathy Hooper and Dona Volkmann 
were also accompanied by Cathy 
and Jim Gulbranson, both CLC 
alumni who have made Southwest 
Indians one of Ihelr hobbles
